RTW: Favorite YA LGBT Book

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic. We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments. 

Next week’s topic: 
In honor of National Pride Month, what's your favorite YA LGBT book?

I'm going to pick a couple favorites. I can't choose just one, because I want both books on the list for different reasons.

First up:
 Boy Meets Boy
by David Levithan

I read it a few years ago in high school and loved it. I've had it on my list of books to buy ever since, I just haven't sat down and ordered it yet. It's a very sweet and beautifully written story. 

Every Day
 by David Levithan

I wanted to include this book because the sexuality and gender identity is more fluid. The main character who goes only by 'A' wakes up in a new body every day (male, female, gay, straight, basically anyone who's the same age). The writing is gorgeous and fast-paced, the concept well-executed. One of my favorite books.
