Speaking Out Mini-Review

Title: Speaking Out

Goodreads Description: Speaking Out features stories for and about LGBT and Q teens by fresh voices and noted authors in the field of young adult literature. These are inspiring stories of overcoming adversity (against intolerance and homophobia) and experiencing life after “coming out.” Queer teens need tales of what might happen next in their lives, and editor Steve Berman showcases a diversity of events, challenges, and, especially, triumphs.

My Thoughts: This is a heartwarming collection of short stories that had me wanting more of all of the characters. I definitely enjoyed reading it, and was especially excited about there being a bowling story included. That isn’t something you find a lot – we need more bowling stories! My only issues with this book were the grammatical errors in most of the stories, and that it wasn’t formatted correctly for my Kindle. That made it hard to read. Otherwise, definitely a great read!

Rating 4/5
