Oh, the Books! Bookish Guide: YA Books with Fantastic LGBTQ Representation

Oh, the Books! Bookish Guides is a monthly recommendation feature in which we share books we love that fit a certain hard-to-find category. Since April is LGBTQ month, (hosted by Cayce and Laura), we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to choose LGBTQ* recommendations for our Bookish Guides feature. Sadly, we each quickly realized that we didn’t have many books to recommend since we haven’t read any! Fortunately, Cayce agreed to stop by and help out by sharing some recommendations (and of course you guys are always great at providing some on Twitter)!

[The books in this list were all curated from our -- and your -- recommendations in our post on Oh, the Books!]
