Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up–Prefacing each title with the notion that sexual orientation is a process involving questions that may not be answered for years, the authors sort out gender identities; societal reactions; and misconceptions about being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. Strategies for coming out to parents and friends suggest taking gradual steps that focus on mutual respect and understanding. The books necessarily provide overlapping information about STDs, online safety, and how to prevent or combat bullying. Colored inset boxes provide asides, and captioned photographs feature multicultural teens in everyday situations. Though these books are suitable for teens in seventh grade and higher, they have a slightly lower reading level. This accessibility and the mix of personal advice and report-worthy factual information make the series a solid addition.
