Kaje Harper | 16767 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 LBTQ+ 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.

This is a cis- gay book and will be moved to that thread.

Kaje Harper | 16767 comments Once a book is nominated once, it'll be on the poll - the voting will start at the end of the month. Cool to see the enthusiasm though :D

Carrie-Anne | 101 comments Shouldn't I'll Give You The Sun be in the cis gay thread? Unless I've somehow missed or forgotten something from the book

No problem - Thanks Carrie-Anne.

You can just nom it in the other thread, and I made a note above. I'll delete it once you move the nomination and there won't be confusion. I've heard good things about it - actually own it and never started it.
