What’s better than snagging an acclaimed YA book for your summer reading pile? Snagging that book when it’s on sale for $2.99, that’s what. If you haven’t added these excellent LGBTQ YA books to your reading list, now’s the perfect time to do so.
Now’s the perfect time to pick up Ashley Herring Blake’s Girl Made of Stars: The book was named one of just eight 2019 nominees in the Lambda Literary Awards’ LGBTQ Children’s/Young Adult category. Girl Made of Stars follows Mara, a bisexual high school junior and founder of her school’s feminist club whose life is turned upside down when her friend Hannah accuses her beloved twin brother Owen of rape. School Library Journal calls it “a must-read for all YA shelves.”
