Feeling left out by the princesses, gossip girls, jocks and outdoorsy types that populate much of today's teen literature? The Full Spectrum is a compilation of personal stories, poetry and artwork submitted by young people who identify as LGBTQ. Some stories are familiar to any adolescent: the exhilaration of a first crush, the heartbreak of lost love. Some are more specific to LGBTQ teens: coming out to family and friends, dealing with homophobia, a female-to-male transsexual's first trip to the men's room, and figuring out one's place in a religious community. This is a wonderful book for anyone dealing with issues of sexual and gender identity, gay or straight, teen or adult.
