This really is an easy breakdown of facts, with adorable graphics, perfect for ages 14+.

The narrator for this book is a queer educator's snail. That, at first, can be a little hard to come to terms with, but our narrator snail does a wonderful job of taking us on a colorful journey that answers questions about queer and trans identities. The focus of this book does seem to be for educating an individual so they can self-identify and answer questions they might have. The author includes ways to get involved and express yourself in the back. I found the activities to be something new and exciting that allowed readers to participate as well as learn. There are also a variety of resources in the back for more information.

This is an excellent introduction to queer and trans identities that is written in a very easy to understand way. I would highly recommend this to any teen in my life.

Quick and easy this is not. Yet, despite its garish (to me anyway) graphic design, this book stands as both a solid introduction to the Queer/Trans experience and a great self-help book for those who are already a part of the larger LGBTQ+ community. From offering reassurance and validation of various lifestyles to some more general ideas and tactics readers might want to pursue on their own, there's definitely something for everyone here.

Nice basic overview of gender expression and sexuality. The cute illustrations were fun, but most of all, I liked that this is a book geared first and foremost for readers who may be trying to figure some things out, and while cis-gendered, heterosexual readers can also learn from it, they're almost a secondary audience. It nicely flips the dynamics of these gender-101-type books.

At first glance, I was enchanted by the fantastical comics of humans, snails, forests, and "sproutlings." The art is lovely and well designed, yes. But then I started reading, and my heart just about exploded. This is a lovely comic for all ages, for anyone (queer, questioning, or just desiring to be a thoughtful ally), about queer and trans identities. Chapters cover the word queer, gender identity, gender expression, sexuality, asexuality, dysphoria, coming out and the safety thereof, self respect and love, healthy and toxic relationships, and other resources. It's the most accessible, comprehensive queer informational text I've come across, because it is quick, detailed and multi-faceted, friendly, and gentle.

Every person is worthwhile and valuable in their own way and if you are able to make some sort of peace with yourself while on your transitional journey that will definitely ease the burden.
