Are the Kids All Right? The Representation of LGBTQ Characters in Children's and Young Adult Literature by B. J. Epstein

Are the Kids All Right? by B.J. Epstein is the first survey of English-language children's literature that feature lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or otherwise queer characters. It explores how LGBTQ characters are portrayed and what this says about contemporary society. The author covers picture books, middle-grade books, young adult fiction and includes an annotated bibliography. Are the Kids All Right? brings together literary studies, sociology, queer studies, and other academic fields in an accessible manner. The research supports detailed analyses of over sixty books for children and young adults by authors such as Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson, Julie Ann Peters, Cris Beam, Alex Sanchez, Lesléa Newman, Nancy Garden and many others. It ranges over topics such as the lack of diversity in many of these works, how same-sex marriage is portrayed, the relative absence of bisexual and transgender characters, how coming out is show as stressful, and more. Are the Kids All Right? is a practical and informative book that will inspire writers and publishers to produce better LGBTQ literature for young readers
