Award-winning young adult novels with LGBTQIA+, queer & trans characters.
“Powerful and empowering, with an optimistic message that we all need more of in our lives.” – Kate Bornstein, author of Gender Outlaw
“[Being Emily] feels incredibly honest, and there are moments of joy, anger, and sorrow, laced together in a way that will make you cry and laugh along with the characters.
