Famed lesbian storyteller Ivan E. Coyote’s first book aimed at queer youth: stories about being true to yourself.
Ivan E. Coyote: Ivan E. Coyote is the author of five previous story collections, the most recent of which is Missed Her. Ivan is also the co-editor (with Zena Sharman) of the anthology Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme. One of her stories appears in the anthology It Gets Better, edited by Dan Savage and Terry Miller. Originally from the Yukon, she now lives in Vancouver.
Sophisticated, earnest, plainspoken and intimate, this collection will speak to LGBTQ youth as well as straight youth, teens and adults. Kirkus Reviews
A funny and empathetic collection of more than forty stories ... Teenagers confronting their sexuality, or who have otehrwise felt like outsiders, will feel as though they've gained an ally in Coyote ... These tales of compassionate relatives, finding love, and even the insecurities that stretch into adulthood should provide reassurance that there is indeed life after high school. Publishers Weekly
The stories in this collection are stunning in every way: unaffected, compassionate, inspirational, and, as if that wasn’t enough, achingly funny ... Great writing has the power to enrich lives; not all writing has the power to save them. Quill and Quire (STARRED REVIEW)
