Seriously! No More Reading Lists! For Real This Time

Just when I thought I was getting a handle on my ever-exploding TBR list (and ever-growing Amazon debt), the finalists for the 25th annual Lambda Literary Awards were announced–and just in time for our upcoming discussion of LGBT YA lit in Adolescent Lit!
