    "A book that will engage you and make you think about the feminization of poverty and the nontraditional family. Written over 20 years ago, you can clearly see how our society has changed and what more we have to do."

    "A very funny and yet deeply touching literary work of childhood memories and struggles to overcome some social barriers. The author reminisces about her childhood days, particularly a memory of her family trying to persuade her to enjoy some rides at an amusement park. Sentimental, emotional, and humorous!"

    "This is an interesting collection of plays. It's written by a lesbian, about lesbians, but anyone can appreciate the complex relationship issues the characters experience in this collection. I recommend this if you're looking for an interesting but short read. "

    "I personally enjoy reading plays, especially several if I enjoy that author's work and want to see their other pieces. There is a lot of debate these days if a Kindle like medium is better than a hard cover book. I prefer the book because there is a lack of glare and feels a bit more personal and exciting to me. I like that Shay Youngblood creates shortstories so they do not take a large time commitment. "

    "A play about lesbians, by lesbians. Portrays an inside look into the actions, decision making and life goals/dynamics of the individuals and the couples respectively. There appears to be quite the joyous mood throughout the story, all the while a darker undertone surfaces. A story sure to keep you entertained!"

    "I recommend Fefu and Her Friends as a wonderful play written by a Cuban-American lesbian playwright, Maria Irene Fornes. It's kind of wild to read a work from the 1970s that covers so many heavy topics that are still very much relevant today. It's also sharply written so this ended up evoking a wide range of emotions in me."

    "This is a very powerful book by Lorraine Hansberry, who died young but did so much for the LGBT community with her works. It tells the story of many members of a family struggling with all manner of things - life, death, sexuality, etc. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great book written by a lesbian."
