Use Browse by Appeal when you don't know what you are looking for or interested in yet. After opening NoveList Plus, follow the directions below to learn how.
For each category you select, choose a value in the corresponding drop-down just to the right.
I recommend if you are looking for books with certain identities represented, set the drop-down to Character and select an aspect of identity relevant to your search. Current examples used by NoveList Plus include, deaf or hard of hearing, Black, Lesbian, etc. NoveList Plus is working on improving this function so character identities listed may change or expand.
Then, make another category Storyline with the Own voices value. This means that the book will be written by someone who identifies within the same marginalized group as the character.
