Diverse Young Adult Books & Fiction

I have a craving for diverse books.  By this I mean that I love books set in different countries with characters who come from different cultures than my own.  They are indeed hard to find though.

The following are some of my favorites in these genres:

Veil of Roses - Laura Fitzgerald
An Iranian-American in the United States of the first time

Dreaming in English - Laura Fitzgerald
An Iranian-American trying to stay in the United States with the man she loves

One True Theory of Love - Laura Fitzgerald
An American woman and her child are courted by an Iranian-American man


Written in the Stars - Aisha Saeed
American born and raised girl of Pakastani descent is forced back into a culture she has never known, having grown up in Florida

The Wrath & the Dawn - Renee Ahdieh
Twist on Arabian Nights

When the Emperor Was Divine - Julie Otsuka
A Japanese-American family put in an internment camp in the United States during World War II

Any suggestions for more fiction taking place in other cultures?  Or other cultures existing in the United States?  I have such a hard time finding decent ones.
