I’m still not entirely convinced WtNV and NMbC aren’t actually set in the same place. Think about it - it would explain a lot

My conclusions echo what I’ve concluded every year since 2011: There aren’t a lot of LGBT YA books being published, and there is definitely room for growth and change in the kinds of LGBT YA being published. The good thing is, I do think that change is happening, even if it’s at a snail’s pace.
Ugh, Malinda Lo just continues to be fabulous in so many ways! Solid data, clear connections with practice, GRAPHS & CHARTS! Just great—and so valuable!
