We need diverse books – but while we call for more, we should support the ones we have. Here are ten books with genderqueer and transgender YA leads.
Share this list on Tumblr now! For more: I Am J, Parrotfish, Almost Perfect, Beautiful Music for Ugly Children, Being Emily, Brooklyn Burning, Some Assembly Required, Rethinking Normal and Happy Families.
[EDIT] While we do our best to research every book to see if people of that group approve it, Luna slipped into the group with the original list. A few of our friends have gently let us know that what our research didn’t reveal was how problematic a lot of people find it. It’s been removed and replaced with Lizard Radio, a book highly anticipated by the team over at The Gay YA.
