In honor of National Coming Out Day, a look back at some of our favorite LGBT YA novels.

I hope that those who came out yesterday, those who are coming out today, and those who will come out tomorrow can envision a world where telling your loved ones you’re LGBTQ is not such a milestone, just a fact of life. My heart is large enough to embrace love in any shape or size. Love defies definition.

“It’s a marvelous thing, the ocean. For some reason when two people sit together looking out at it, they stop caring whether they talk or stay silent. You never get tired of watching it. And no matter how rough the waves get, you’re never bothered by the noise the water makes by the commotion of the surface - it never seems too loud, or too wild.” Banana Yoshimoto, Goodbye Tsugumi (via bookmania)

The motion of the ocean. One of the most peaceful sounds I’ve ever heard. Often when I’m on a cruise ship, I’ll end a busy day by staring out at the water, listening to the waves crash below me. I always sleep like a baby when at sea.

“What a blessing it is to love books. Everybody must love something, and I know of no objects of love that give such substantial and unfailing returns as books and a garden.” Elizabeth von Arnim (via booksandhotchocolate)

Teach a child to read, and give them a gift that will pay dividends for the rest of their lives.
