Bookshelf comment

Teens identifying as queer (or not) will find a lot to love in this compilation of true accounts from more than twenty different authors! With equal doses of humour and pathos, each writer brings their own unique perspective to the full spectrum of gender and sexual identity, offering inspiration and empathy to teens as they make their own discoveries.

Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Teens are more aware of sexuality and identity than ever, and they're looking for answers and insights, as well as a community of others. In order to help create that community, YA authors David Levithan and Billy Merrell have collected original poems, essays, and stories by young adults in their teens and early 20s. The Full Spectrum includes a variety of writers-gay, lesbian, bisexual, straight, transitioning, and questioning-on a variety of subjects: coming out, family, friendship, religion/faith, first kisses, break-ups, and many others.

This one of a kind collection will, perhaps, help all readers see themselves and the world around them in ways they might never have imagined. We have partnered with the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to them.
