Only one bed!! A staple of the fake dating trope.

Not My Problem | Ciara Smyth

I wrote a kind of combined review of both of Ciara Smyth's YA books for Autostraddle: https://www.autostraddle.com/ciara-smyths-queer-ya-books-remind-me-of-being-a-te....

Both are as hilarious as they are moving, with a very authentic and empathetic feel to her queer teenage characters. Not My Problem is laugh-out-loud funny, make-you-cry sad, and everything in between. I loved it! #QueerBooks #LGBTQBooks #LGBTQ #QueerYA

Ciara Smyth is so funny. One of the best YA authors writing today, imho. You can tell she is really is in touch with contemporary teens (she is also a social worker).

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK! There is a lot going on in Like Other Girls – effortlessly and deftly balanced, by the way – but at its core it's a story about a closeted butch lesbian teen struggling with and overcoming internalized misogyny. Also: lots of football, female friendship and solidarity, swoony romance, intergenerational queer mentorship, masculine of centre gender expression, anger management, and a whole lot of personal growth.

Mara's excitement and wonder when she sees an adult who's a butch lesbian 😭

Queer kids seeing queer adults thriving is so important

Next! Third book for #JubilantJuly; working through some of my #queerya on backlog. I have always enjoyed Robin Reardon‘s books, and this one looks really good.

This novella is set directly after the resolution of the first in the series. I read it quickly but it is just as delightful as the first novel. I hear good things about the audio, too...the same actors reprising their roles from the first audio-which was spectacular. #queerlit #queerYA

A #QueerYA #Fantasy w/ unfulfilled potential. A bisexual necromancer living in a change-adverse land where the raised Dead are inexplicably changing into dangerous Shades. But it doesn't develop the MC enough to earn emotional investment before plunging her into grief 100 pages in where she's mean, depressed, and addicted. When this stagnant middle section ends to return to the main plot, I had a hard time caring. Also, bad guy was super obvious.

On a Summer Night | Gabriel D. Vidrine

I wish it was easier to find books like this when I was a Tween/Teen.

This is a great short book about a 14 yr old trans boy‘s first summer camp experience. He attends the camp in VA that his best friend, an asexual girl, has been attending for years.

This is a great addition to any YA library, with a different point of view than most. I liked it.
