This latest book published by Harlequin teens is about the protagonist girl named Allie Sekemoto who is turned into a vampire. She is described as having East Asian Descent:
My reflection stared back at me, a dirty-faced girl with straight black hair and “squinty eyes,” as Rat put it.
“Or maybe I’ll just save it for that sweet little Asian doll. We don’t get many whores through here, do we, boys?”
“I should have known,” he said, coming forward. “I should have known you would be drawn to that. It’s very fitting, actually.”
“It’s perfect,” I said, holding up the sword. “What is it, anyway?”
Kanin regarded me with amusement. “What you’re holding is called a katana.”
the publishers display their racist nature by choosing to place a picture of a White/Caucasian woman on the cover what’s more insulting and dehumanizing is that the Author Julie Kagawa is herself a Japanese American
there is a movie adaptation planned and due to Hollywood’s racist hatred against people of colour, a white actress may be picked to portray the East Asian Character Allie Sekemoto
