All Out

Readers searching for positive, nuanced, and authentic queer representation—or just a darn good selection of stories—need look no further than this superb collection. KIRKUS REVIEWS, STARRED REVIEW

This anthology of distinct stories and experiences is exceptional in scope and quality, and gives voice to the experiences that have long existed but often go unrepresented. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, STARRED REVIEW

LGBTQIA story collections are scarce, but even if they weren’t, this one would be essential. BOOKLIST


Take a journey through time and genres and discover a past where queer figures live, love and shape the world around them. Seventeen of the best young adult authors across the queer spectrum have come together to create a collection of beautifully written diverse historical fiction for teens.

From a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood set in war-torn 1870s Mexico featuring a transgender soldier, to two girls falling in love while mourning the death of Kurt Cobain, forbidden love in a sixteenth-century Spanish convent or an asexual girl discovering her identity amid the 1970s roller-disco scene, All Outtells a diverse range of stories across cultures, time periods and identities, shedding light on an area of history often ignored or forgotten.

Featuring stories by Malinda Lo, Elliot Wake, Anna-Marie McLemore, Shaun David Hutchinson, Mackenzi Lee, Kody Keplinger, Kate Scelsa, Nilah Magruder, Alex Sanchez, Natalie C. Parker,  Dahlia Adler, Sara Farizan, Scott Tracey and Robin Talley, Tess Sharpe, and introducing Tehkor Kay Mejia.

Available in Hardback & E-Book from HarlequinTEEN.
