This story is just plain weird!

Move over. You’re taking up too much space. There’d be enough seats if you didn’t have two of them, so skootch down. Let someone else in. There’s room for everybody and everyone fits, but in the new book The Lotterys Plus One by Emma Donoghue illustrated by Caroline Hadilaksono, not everybody fits in. Nine-year-old Sumac […]

A great reminder that adolescence is hard

Mom says you’re growing like a weed. It’s true: you’ve outgrown your favorite sweater, your best shirt, and all your summer shoes. The only thing that fits is a pair of trousers that were once too big – but in the new book The Pants Project by Cat Clarke, you might have to fight to […]

Bookwatch: ‘This Is How It Always Is’

You must not tell. You cannot breathe a word to anyone who doesn’t already know. That Which Cannot Be Spoken must remain buried, put away, frozen, lips sealed, or in the closet. You cannot tell because, as in the new novel This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel, secrets change everything. In the […]

Discover this light, gossipy and a little scandalous read

It’s all about who you know. The guy who bags your groceries might have stock tips for you. A co-worker introduces you to your next best friend.

Scores: The story of a gay man who owned a mainstream strip club

“I’m telling!” If you were ever a child, that whine is familiar to you. It indicated a tattletale nearby, a secret spilled to Mom, and somebody about to be in trouble. Whatever. Annoying as it was, “I’m telling” never hurt much more than your pride then. Today, as in the new book Scores by Michael […]

Here’s your spring book review roundup!

The pile of holiday cards has finally been dispensed. They’ve been sitting in a lump on the counter for months, and you just now got around to sorting them. Some were too beautiful to let go; others had messages you wanted to save, some had addresses you needed, a couple pictures fell on your lap, […]

The calmness and comprehensiveness of this book sets it apart

Your preschooler has always had an active imagination. Flights of fancy and dress-up fill his days. She’s rough-and-tumble, a scrapper in her mind. Make-believe has always been a big part in your child’s life but now you’re hearing something you know in your heart is not pretend – and in the new book Raising the […]

A no-nonsense guide to marriage, gay and otherwise

The box was too small for a toaster. There was no pony in there, no new car, not even a stuffed animal. The box was too small for all that, but it held so much more: dreams, ideas, happiness, congratulations! And if you’re lucky, your wise new fiancé tucked Before I Do by Elizabeth F. […]

This could-be-thorny subject is beautifully tackled

In its most basic description, it’s a muscle. Nothing computerized, no easy-to-follow instructions or list of parts. Nope, it’s a muscle; a dub-thumping, miraculous group of cells that was beating when you were born, due to simple electrical activity. It’s just a muscle, although in the audiobook Beast by Brie Spangler, the heart knows who […]

Everybody has a trans story …

Everybody, as they say, has a story to tell. An ancestor was captured in an early war. Parents overcame adversity in a new country. A health scare, a welcome blessing, a lucky streak, a chance meeting, we all have our tales to share. And in On Christopher Street: Transgender Stories, photographs by Mark Seliger, you’ll […]
