Book Review: Queer Second Edition

Teen life is hard enough, but for teens who are LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer), it can be even harder. When do you decide to come out? Will your friends accept you? And how do you meet people to date? Queer is a humorous, engaging, and honest guide that helps LGBTQ teens come out to friends and family, navigate their social life, figure out if a crush is also queer, and challenge bigotry and homophobia. Personal stories from the authors and sidebars on queer history provide relatable context. This updated edition is a must-read for any teen who thinks they might be queer or knows someone who is.

I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

Oh how I wish there were books like this when I was growing up. Being a teenager is hard enough with the angst, hormones, and growth spurts. Add in confusing feelings of sexuality and you have a recipe for true hardship. As a bisexual identifying female who often questioned my own sexuality many times through my teenage and adult years, I found this book to be refreshing. I spent so many years as a young adult feeling like an outsider and like something was indefinitely wrong with me because I wasn’t like everybody else. I feel this book will help so many young people in the acceptance of themselves as well as others. 

I really enjoyed the stories. I felt I could really connect with the characters and resonate with their stories. I feel this is one of those books that is important to the society we live in now. 

I am giving this book 4 stars because it was truly a work of art. I enjoyed everything about it and I think it will help many of our youth accept themselves. I also believe this would be a fantastic book for parents of the LGBTQIA+ youth in understanding what their son, daughter, or non-gender conforming child may be going through.
