Update: The Controversy Surrounding The Continent by Keira Drake

Illuminite Caliginosus

Earlier today I posted about a controversy surrounding a soon-to-be released YA novel, The Continent.

A short time ago Harlequin Teen, the imprint publishing the book, tweeted this statement.

Translation: since none of us in the editing department actually has any non-white friends who could’ve told us better, we really fucked this one up to be damned, so now we’re making her rewrite the entire book to cover all our asses. Peace. One love.

Wonder what all those basement dwelleing jackholes talking smack about black women anyone having issues with the book have to say now?
