Even More Stuff for the Teen Age - Suggested GLBTQ Fiction Titles
Did you love reading The Vast Fields of Ordinary and The Mariposa Club from the Stuff for the Teen Age List? Want to read some more cool books like that? Here are a few GLBTQ-themed titles that I enjoyed reading. Some will make you laugh and some will make you cry... but all of these titles will tell a great story involving relatable teenage gay or lesbian characters.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
Evil? by Timothy Carter
It all starts one fateful morning when Stu's younger brother Billy catches him touching himself in the shower. I mean, it -is- a sin... right? It even has a name; The Sin of Onan. When Stu's brother tells the entire town about the "incident" everyone Stu knows shuns him for doing the dirty deed. Everyone, that is, but Fon Pyre- a demon Stu raises periodically to question about religious truths and lies. When things go from bad to super duper crazy overnight, Stu eventually discovers he's dealing with a fallen angel who is warping the townpeoples' minds. And this angel? Turns out, he's not the only mindwarping dude with wings, either. Will Stu be able to defeat the angels, save his mom, and survive the wrath of the entire town before they burn off his crotch in righteous justice?

The Sky Always Hears Me (and the Hills Don't Mind) by Kirstin Cronn-Mills
Morgan isn't a big fan of living in Central Nowhere. As the name implies, there's not a lot going on. Her love life is also a complicated mess; there's her boring boyfriend Derek, her work crush Rob, and the girl who-kissed-her-one-time Tessa. Does kissing a girl (and enjoying it) make her a lesbian... even if she likes guys, too? Who does she really want to be with? Morgan honestly doesn't even know. The one person she does know that she loves is her grandmother. But when her alcoholic father spills the big family secret and shatters Morgan's world, everything she thought she knew about life, love, and grandma lies in tatters. The dreaded junior prom looms on the horizon. When Morgan finally picks the person she wants to be with, will her fragile emotional state end things for them before they truly begin?
