Take a journey through time and genres and discover a past where queer figures live, love and shape the world around them. Seventeen of the best young adult authors across the queer spectrum have come together to create a collection of beautifully written diverse historical fiction for teens. From a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood set in war-torn 1870s Mexico featuring a transgender soldier, to two girls falling in love while mourning the death of Kurt Cobain, forbidden love in a sixteenth-century Spanish convent or an asexual girl discovering her identity amid the 1970s roller-disco scene, All Out tells a diverse range of stories across cultures, time periods and identities, shedding light on an area of history often ignored or forgotten.

I can't remember exactly how I found this book, but when I read the description I completely and totally fell in love. I'm super excited to see what is in store within the pages of the novel. There are short stories written by authors like Kody Keplinger, Robin Talley, and Shaun David Hutchinson. If you're looking for a new LGBT anthology to pick up like I am I would definitely recommend looking at this one.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
