Waiting on Wednesday: All Out: The No-Longer-Secret Stories of Queer Teens Throughout the Ages by several authors

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for All Out: The No-Longer-Secret Stories of Queer Teens Throughout the Ages by several authors!

We're going all out today (get the pun?) and we're bringing you a collection of queer stories! Just came out yesterday. Waiting who?

Publication date: February 27th, 2018
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

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.

Here we have a collection of stories, some known and some unknown, where all protagonists are queer. Because yes, because representation matters. This is what we deserve.

We'd like to encourage you all to read different genres of books and books with characters as diverse as possible. They really do open minds and they're totally worth it.

By the way, the cover is stunning!

Are you excited about All Out?
