    *Starred Review* Arguably the first queer anthology for middle-schoolers, this generous collection of 16 stories covers the LGBTQIA+ waterfront, featuring tales with gay, lesbian, bi, trans, gender fluid, and nonbinary characters. The types of stories are also varied and include traditional prose narratives, two graphic stories, and one in verse. Characters are a happy exercise in diversity, too, featuring those who are Black, white, and brown, and just over half of the stories' protagonists identify as cis female—a welcome departure from the historic prevalence of male leading characters—with five nonbinary, one cis male, and one transgender lead filling out the bill. Happily, the stories are uniformly excellent but there are, as always, some standouts. Lisa Bunker's "Petra and Pearl," for example, features two kids who are fellow fan-fic writers and long-distance friends. Gradually, the two, who write under girls' names, come to terms with the realization that each of them is a transgender girl, despite their transphobic families. Marieke Nijkamp's "Splinter and Ash" stars a teen, assigned female at birth, who longs to be a knight. But how? Might it have something to do with falling in love with the princess? And Mark Oshiro's "Guess What's Coming to Dinner" is, not to put too fine a point on it, a hoot. A handful of gay adults rounds out this fine collection. Grades 5-8. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
