Using an accessible question and answer format, Queer addresses many of the most common concerns of teens identifying on the LGBT spectrum. Insightful, hip and often very funny, this book is highly recommended!

Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Teen life is hard enough with all of the pressures kids face, but for teens who are LGBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender), it's even harder. When do you decide when to come out? And to whom? Will your friends accept you? And how on earth do you meet people to date?
Queer is a humorous, engaging, and honest guide that helps LGBT teens:
come out to friends and family
navigate their new LGBT social life
figure out if a crush is also queer
rise up against bigotry and homophobia
and more!
Written by two of the top queer writers of our generation, Queer also includes personal stories from the authors and sidebars on queer history. It's a must-read for every teen who thinks they might be queer or knows someone who is.
From The Publisher*A useful, informative, and fun guide for navigating life as an LGBT teen.
