Lambda Literary Awards Finalists

Finalists for this year's Lambda Literary Awards (for excellence in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender lit) have just been announced. Here are the titles in the LGBT Children's/Young Adult category. (As always, I'm listing only the YA finalists here, although in this case there's only one book for younger readers that's not included on this list.)

Out of the Pocket, Bill Konigsberg
How They Met & Other Stories
, David Levithan
What They Always Tell Us
, Martin Wilson
Love & Lies: Marisol's Story
, Ellen Wittlinger

I didn't even know that Ellen Wittlinger had a new book out, and it turns out that it's sort of a sequel to Hard Love! That book isn't a favorite or anything, but it was one of the early Printz honor books, and thus was part of the first big batch of YA books I read as an adult. And so I think of it fondly.

Anyway. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony on May 28th.
