Ashly (ashlyh) | 188 comments Here are glbt books I read: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan Trevor A Novella by James Lecesne Wandering Son Volume One by Shimura Takako

Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin I highly recommend this one. GLBT is not the main plot of the story. Its about Sexuality and Intersex.
