Description
Lesbian storyteller Ivan E. Coyote’s first book for queer youth includes brand new stories and others culled from previous collections, inspired by the tragic increase in the number of teen suicides resulting from bullying. Funny, inspiring, and full of heart, these stories are about embracing and celebrating difference and feeling comfortable in one's own skin, no matter what the circumstance.

        September 3, 2012
        In a funny and empathetic collection of more than 40 stories, some of which were published in Coyote’s earlier books, the author looks back on her childhood in Canada’s Yukon territory in the 1970s (when she was often mistaken for a boy), as well as more recent interactions (which can still involve being mistaken for a man). Adults are perhaps more likely to respond to the retrospective nature of these autobiographical essays, but teenagers confronting their sexuality, or who have otherwise felt like outsiders, will feel as though they’ve gained an ally in Coyote. The collection occasionally doubles back on itself—Coyote offers advice to her younger self more than once, certain family stories are repeated—yet even this is in keeping with the easygoing storyteller’s tone; reading these stories is like sitting in the audience at one of Coyote’s spoken-word performances. These tales of compassionate relatives (“Uncle Rob has never let the fact that I was declared female at birth get in the way of our male bonding”), finding love, and even the insecurities that stretch into adulthood should provide reassurance that there is indeed life after high school. Ages 14–up.

        Celebrated Canadian storyteller Coyote here compiles short, mostly autobiographical vignettes about childhood, family and queerness. Unlike many compilations aimed at youth, this one doesn't limit itself to stories about being a teenager. Readers are just as likely to hear about the adult Coyote's worries about performing in a high school or the moment when she learns her father has stopped drinking as about the author's younger self rolling down hills in tires or playing kissing games. Most stories are neither explicit nor didactic about queerness or gender; within stories about childhood or travel, incidents of the author being forced into dresses or nearly chased out of bathrooms speak for themselves. Details from one piece are sometimes echoed in another. In one section, Coyote tells several stories about a friend's gentle, feminine child named Francis; later, she talks about deciding whether to tell that story to an audience of "beefy...biker-looking types," explaining, "The Francis story was a tale about a little boy who liked to wear dresses." Rather than seeming tedious, however, this repetition builds a sense of familiarity as readers come to know about and recognize details of the storyteller's life. Sophisticated, earnest, plainspoken and intimate, this collection will speak to LGBTQ youth as well as straight youth, teens and adults. (Memoir. 14 & up)
