Hispanic Heritage YA Novels

National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15 to October 15 this year.  It is a month in which tribute is paid to the many Hispanic Americans who have contributed to our nation’s history and culture.  Celebrate this year by reading a teen book with a Hispanic protagonist.  If you don’t know where to get started, try one of these great reads available in CADL’s collection.
