All Out: The No-Longer-Secret Stories of Queer Teens Throughout the Ages (Hardcover)
I loved All Out: Queer Teens throughout the Ages because of its diverse representation in both sexual orientation and race. From lesbian and gay to transgender and asexual teens, there are stories for everyone. Mackenzie Lee, Robin Talley and Malinda Lo wrote my favorite stories. I also found new-to-me authors like Elliot Wake I need to check out. This should be in every high school library.— Toni, High School Librarian in Littleton, CO
Take a journey through time and genres to discover stories where queer teens live, love and shape the world around them. Seventeen young adult authors across the queer spectrum have come together to create a collection of beautifully written diverse historical fiction for teens. From a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood set in war-torn 1870s Mexico featuring a transgender soldier, to two girls falling in love while mourning the death of Kurt Cobain, forbidden love in a sixteenth-century Spanish convent or an asexual girl discovering her identity amid the 1970s roller-disco scene, All Out tells a diverse range of stories across cultures, time periods and identities, shedding light on an area of history often ignored or forgotten. "Readers searching for positive, nuanced, and authentic queer representation--or just a darn good selection of stories--need look no further than this superb collection."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review Featuring original stories from: Malinda Lo Mackenzi LeeRobin TalleyKody KeplingerElliot WakeAnna-Marie McLemoreShaun David HutchinsonDahlia AdlerTess SharpeKate ScelsaNatalie C.
