In addition to writing, I also read and post LGBTQ YA fiction reviews. We’re living in a “golden age” of LGBTQ YA, in my opinion. Now more than ever, young adult fiction reflects the diverse identity and experiences of those reading it. Whether you’re a teenager, parent, or educator, I hope you can discover the perfect queer YA book for your needs. In the right place and the right time, a book that you understand and that understands you can mean the world.
Here you can find a list of the books I have reviewed so far, organized by rating.

If you would like to send recommendations my way, I am all ears! YA books in all genres are welcome so long as they tell a compelling story and feature LGBTQ characters. I also believe that we can learn something from everyone’s story and review non-LGBTQ YA novels on Goodreads.
