Do you identify with a book's protagonists when you read? Shamini Flint says she started writing her Sasha series of books about a girl growing up in Asia because she couldn't find books like these for her daughter. She thought it was important for her to be exposed to characters who were like her - someone who looked like her, thought and felt like her, and lived in a country like hers. What does she say was her fear for her daughter's sense of self if she wasn't exposed to books like these?
