Kaje Harper | 16761 comments The group decided to try going back to having Book of the Month readings and discussions. The vote indicated that we should try two BotM selections, one with gay cis-male main characters, and one with any other aspect of LBTQ Young Adult life.

In this thread please nominate books with gay, cis-male main character(s) that are suitable for an under-18 audience and not a previous selection.

Check our past Book of the Month shelf for books we have already read and discussed : https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

We will close nominations when there are 8 books nominated or Midnight July 30th.

Nominations are now closed - poll is up HERE

Vote through midnight Aug 4th.

Is that one OK for YA readers? I beta read her recent paranormal and it was definitely erotic, but I haven't read this one.

ETA: checked with Gillian and this is YA - and a nice thing is it is a free read :)

That one is hysterical - the characters are slightly older (just out of school) but there is no on-page sex so it works for this group.

Rez Delnava (rez_delnava) | 596 comments I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson I'll Give You the Sun
This one was accidentally nominated in the LBT+ thread, and I liked it, so I'll nominate it here in place of Geneva.

And if this doesn't get the BotM, I'll make a buddy-reads for it, (aiming for a read-by-date around the third week of August or later)

Kaje Harper | 16761 comments Thanks Rez - I bought it, and never actually read it... I'll join a buddy read if it ends up there.

Cool. I read another of hers - liked the setting and atmosphere a lot.
