I'm always looking for a book that will make me feel something, and sometimes those books aren't fiction. Rather, they're real life, and they capture your heart in a raw, passionate, make-me-feel-something-deeper kind of way. The Letter Q is just that book. This powerful anthology promises to capture the heart of millions of readers, both young and old, looking for that true and special connection that comes when authors take the time to place themselves in the shoes of the reader and pour their heart onto the pages. Sold? So was I, and now I get to share this awesomeness with you!
If you received a letter from your older self, what do you think it would say? What do you wish it would say?That the boy you were crushing on in History turns out to be gay too, and that you become boyfriends in college? That the bully who is making your life miserable will one day become so insignificant that you won't remember his name until he shows up at your book signing?In this anthology, sixty-three award-winning authors such as Michael Cunningham, Amy Bloom, Jacqueline Woodson, Gregory Maguire, David Levithan, and Armistead Maupin make imaginative journeys into their pasts, telling their younger selves what they would have liked to know then about their lives as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgendered people. Through stories, in pictures, with bracing honesty, these are words of love and understanding, reasons to hold on for the better future ahead. They will tell you things about your favorite authors that you never knew before. And they will tell you about yourself.
In a world where bullying, peer violence and poor self-image are far too prevalent, I truly believe this is a must-read book for all. Regardless of your viewpoint, the powerful message of finding the truth in yourself, opening your heart and letting yourself be YOU can reach anyone willing to listen.
