The Quick List of Contemporary Lesbian YA Fiction

by Leanne Lieberman
This is just a quick list of all the contemporary young adult lesbian fiction, separated out from the fantasy/scifi and historical books. Mostly that means 'set in the 1990s or later'.  

A few books (e.g. Hey, Dollface, Annie on My Mind and Gravity) are actually set in the 1970s and 1980s, but having read them, this doesn't really matter. A few we took a guess on, as they aren't meant to be historical, and probably seem more modern than historical to readers, but there are a few titles that could easily end up in a third 'late 20th century but not modern' category. While we're trying to read every lesbian book in the world, we obviously haven't quite managed yet, and still have to research reviews and . So if a book is in the wrong place, please tell us!

Unlike the full list of YA fiction, these books are currently organised by title rather than author. The following list will be broken down further, with descriptions for books, along themes such as coming out, culture and mature content. Eventually. There are lots of books to get through!

For other categories/lists, check the links at the end of the post.
