    "I enjoyed this collection of stories that were all gay-friendly. The fact that they were holiday-themed is especially important considering the abandonment that many LGBT people feel during the Christmas and New Year's."

    "I myself have not read the novel, The Bane Chronicles, but upon reading the synopsis I can make an educated guess that it would fit quite nicely into LGBT-t themed short story collections for young adults. It is a fictional novel for young adults, who follows a character who is described as a flamboyant male. "

    "I don't recommend "Am I Blue?: Coming Out from the Silence" for everyone. For instance, if the person is very scared and unsure of themselves, it may enforce those feelings. If the person has some hope, perhaps the stories could provide them with some comfort that there are people like them."
