Description

This book was conceived as part of the response to a spate of suicides among LGBT youth that revealed how vulnerable and isolated these teens often still are. The popularity of the "It Gets Better" You-Tube campaign shows how badly needed are messages that tell LGBT teenagers that they will be ok if they just hang on. THE LETTER Q takes this one step further by moving beyond the simple platitude of "it gets better" to tell a deeper and more personal story for each of its contributors. Each letter is like a tightly focused biography, where the writer reveals an aspect of his or herself that speaks to the heart of what's important to LGBT teens. With moving stories from contributors such as Brian Selznick, Michael Cunningham, Amy Bloom, David Levithan, and Rakesh Satyal, this is a book that should be available to every LGBT kid coming of age today, and fans of this stellar list of authors.

This title contains mature language and subject matter that may not be appropriate for every student. The characters in this book deal with tough issues and the editors of BookBeat hope that their stories will help you gain a better understanding and tolerance of others.
