Book List!

This is a list of all of the YA books I know of that deal with queer issues, as well as links to buy them. I’m sorting them by the LGBTQ themes they deal with. The books are probably going to be listed in no particular order, cause I can’t be assed to alphabetize. Enjoy, and if there’s anything missing or you think something should not be on here, let me know!

Note: I haven’t read all of these books.
