    "George is a journey through the mind of a child who's realizing that his identity is not what he thought it was. Suburbly written, this book is a tutorial for those who might have trouble wrapping their head around what's going through the mind of a transgenedered person."

    "If you are looking for transgender friendly books, Boy in the Dress is definitely a great option for that. It is a really sweet and funny book with a nice storyline that I would say is certainly transgender friendly. This book can also be suitable for younger children and adults alike so I would highly recommend it!"

    "The My Fair Captain series, in general, is weak. This book is offensive and makes broad sweeping generalizations about gay men as a whole. My fair captain does little more than push negative stereotypes about gay men."

    "This is a great and easy read. Recently, after coming out, I have been reading more and more books about the wonderful love between two women. This book does not disappoint. I can easily imagine myself in this situation, and it was enjoyable to read. There are definite conflict in the storyline, and there are moments between Samantha and Hunter that leaves your heart beating. I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the Gay community. "

    "I received this book as a book club selection back when it was first published in the 90s, but had no idea it was part of a series. I found the premise of the book fascinating but made the mistake of loaning it to a friend and never got it back. Every once in a while something in the news would make me think of this book and wish I could read it again, but it wasn't until a couple of months ago that I impulsively searched Amazon and it actually came up. Now I think I need to read some of his other work. I had forgotten what a self-centered jerk the main character, Fullin, could be, and some other details, but the basic idea behind the story is still very striking. It was also fun to look at the map and figure out that the real-life area Tober Cove is based on is not far from where I grew up in Michigan."

This story, "First Spring Grass Fire" tells the story of growing up in a strict christian household and how they found their way to being who they are today despite issues with their father and others. I think it's a great transgender friendly read for anyone in the market."

    "I probably got half way through this book before I realized it wasn't for me. It's well written and clever. But it's too preachy on the issue of tolerance. I mean I have compassion for everyone, but let form my own opinion without feeling I'm being manipulated. I wouldn't say the book is awful; again, it is not my cup of tea."
