Whether it’s a rom-com or a fantasy novel, a sci-fi book or a horror novel, the young adult books are still overwhelmingly heteronormative. Join LIKE A LOVE STORY author Abdi Nazemian, WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE author Tehlor Kay Mejia, THIS IS KIND OF AN EPIC LOVE STORY author Kacen Callendar, and Angelo Surmelis, author of THE DANGEROUS ART OF BLENDING IN, as they discuss the need for queer teens to have books that allow them to see themselves as worthy of love, no matter what the genre.
