Where are the Gay Parents in YA Literature

Welcome to the second annual Where are the Gay Parents in Children’s Literature. This year, we’re focusing specifically on YA. My co-host, Jonathon Arnston will be guest blogging here at my blog tomorrow (Wednesday, May 30).

I’ll be posting my own review of Stephanie Perkins’ Lola and the Boy Next Door on Thursday, May 31.

Check out our other participants, posting today:

I'm glad I didn't commit to this, because I am SWAMPED right now, but I will definitely be making time to read the posts.

Thanks, all!
