HELLO!!!
I haven't been on this site for ages, and since the last time I was here I'm actually doing so well [Smile]
But, I got a kindle for christmas today, and I wondered if anybody had any suggestions for books about Lesbians? I'd really like to find a book about someone coming out, or teen gays, but anything is good [Smile]
Anyways, I hope everybody is having a festive holiday season!!!
THANK YOUUUU!

There are a couple good lists to start with I know of:

• http://www.multcolib.org/teens/glbt.html
• http://portrait-of-a-woman.blogspot.com/2011/07/lesbian-teen-novels-week-25th-to-31st.html (Btw, Sara Ryan is on that list, and I should mention she's a Scarleteen supporter as well as an excellent author, so double-reason to support her!)
• http://www.alexsanchez.com/gay_teen_books.htm
• http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/16326.Lesbian_teen_fiction

Have a great time reading! [Smile]

Hi Maddie! One book I really want to recommend is Emma Donoghue's "Kissing the Witch." It's a collection of fairy tales that includes some lesbian characters. It's technically for young adults, but my aunt was actually the one who recommended it to me (since she knows I love fairy tales).

I haven't read many of the books on their list, but Autostraddle is a fantastic website and I totally trust their YA book recommendations for queer and lesbian teens: http://www.autostraddle.com/20-best-teen-novels-for-queer-girls-143198/
