AGAIN, DAMMIT!!! A-FUCKING-GAIN via[livejournal.com profile] racebending , a book called Magic Under Glass has a fucking white girl on the cover. And this is the book's description of the main character:

Nimira is a performer, dancing and singing in search of fortune, after migrating from Tassim, in the far East... in Lorinar, she is nothing but a dark-skinned amusement, a novelty “trouser girl” who earns nothing but pennies and whose number comes after acrobats and trained dogs in the music hall she is employed at. ... Nim was a breath of fresh air. For starters, she is dark-skinned and from a different culture; she is strong without being kick-ass: she cries when she has to cry, she fights when she has to fight, she adapts when she has to adapt. She is resilient, she is practical – and she is proud! Proud of her heritage and past.

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. [livejournal.com profile] bookshop suggests a boycott of Bloomsbury. I am planning to finally get around to buying Liar, but will be happy to join after this. DAMMIT! Didn't we JUST GO THROUGH THIS!!!! the icing on the cake is that the book trailer has the character as dark skinned. *headdesk*
