For everyone who ever asks (and there are a lot; people who’ve read Talk ask me this all the time): “Is there, like, a list of gay-themed YA novels I could recommend to my class/book group/youth group/whatever?” The answer is yes, and here’s a great place to find one: Lee Wind’s blog, I’m Here. I’m Queer. What the Hell do I read? For starters, how ’bout Baby Be-Bop? It’s one of the sweetest books I’ve ever read.
(P.S. Burning the books actually doesn’t work.)
