The No-longer-secret Stories of Queer Teens Throughout the AgesBook - 2018
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."

This. Book. Sounds. AMAAAZING. A queer short story collection written by LGBTQ+ authors and allies. I'm particularly excited to read the stories written by Mackenzi Lee, Elliot Wake, and Kody Keplinger. There are also so many authors I've never read before!
