There’s nothing like the first time. Whether it’s a first crush, first date, first kiss, or finding tolerance and approval for the first time, for gay, lesbian, bi, and trans teens—or those still exploring and discovering their sexuality and identity—these important firsts can shape the rests of their lives. Gathering the courage to come out to their families, admit their feelings to a friend, or go to school presenting as the people they really are can be a struggle. But with the support of their allies and their own inner strength, the brave young people in these stories take the first steps toward happiness and living on their own terms. From sweet stories of newly discovered love, humorous accounts of awkward dinners and dances, to fights for acceptance and even survival, the teens in this anthology must face new challenges and rise to meet them. These are the first times they’ll never forget.Midnight in the Maze by J. Leigh BaileyA Warrior from a Different Tribe by S.A.

As always with anthologies, the stories are of varying quality and some of them left me unsatisfied due to the shortness, but overall, it's a great collection of feel-good-stories. :)
JUST RIGHT by JOHN GOODEI wonder if there is ever gonna be a time when I find a John Goode book/short story that I don't absolutely love! I don't think so, but I sure will enjoy trying to find one :PThis is short, cute, funny and hopeful about love! I would like to share my favorite quote from this...
A wonderful collection of shorts about young LGBTQ men and women, who experience a first in some way, be it a first kiss or a first date or a first relationship. It's about finding yourself, being who you are and realizing your potential.Some hit me harder than others, some ranged around three stars...
