Marcus, Eric. What If? Answers to Questions about What it Means to be Gay and Lesbian. Simon Pulse, 2013.
This is a teen version of a book that could have been titled "Everything you ever wanted to know about GLBTQIA and were afraid to ask." It contains lots of very helpful information that is neither dumbed-down to sound ridiculous nor spoken of in such technical terms that no once can understand, and it includes many real questions from real teenagers. I would definitely want this book in my library's collection. My only complaint is that the "T" in LGBT is more or less ignored; but the book's subtitle makes it pretty clear that it does not cover issues of gender identity.
