LGBT YA books

*Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, for those who don't know

 

These seem to be particuarly hard to come by, for obvious reasons, so here's a thread to recommend any LGBT YA books. I'd be really thankful. :smileyhappy:

 

I'll start off.

 

 

Keeping You a Secret and Luna by Julie Anne Peters

 

This author has written a lot of LGBT books, but these are the only two I've read so far (the others are on my to-read list). 
Keeping You a Secret, to be honest, seemed a little lackluster to me, but I was just glad to find a book with a Lesbian couple as the main characters.

Luna, which I'm currently reading, I'm really enjoying and finding really intresting. 

 

 

 

Am I Blue? 

 

Highly recommened for any LGBT teens.

Re: LGBT YA books

I love YA LGBT! My favorite is Between Mom and Jo by Julie Anne Peters, with Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden (it's a classic!) coming in as a close second.

Ash
by Malinda Lo was very good too, but it barely feels like a LGBT book because there's no emphasis on the f/f relationship.

Re: LGBT YA books

My FAVORITE LGBT book series is Rainbow Boys, which I found completely by accident. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b9/AlexSanchez_RainbowBoys.jpg. The other two in the series are called Rainbow High and Rainbow Road.

Emily, all the ones you mentioned are awesome! And I agree about Ash.
