Book Description

From School Library Journal Gr 7 Up-Nicholson again brings together a strong collection of works by talented Native writers. This time, the short stories all have an LGBTQ sci-fi twist. The introduction gives readers background information about how two-spirit people have always been a part of life. The pieces are varied as people find one another on Mars, on their way to Mars, or through a touch that transforms humans into hummingbirds. The diverse characters experience transitioning, virtual-reality romance, and the transformative power of love. The only downside: the yearning for more tales to continue. VERDICT An accessible book that will intrigue readers looking for love in unusual places.-Amy Zembroski, Indian Community School, Franklin, WI Read more Review 'I'd like every single person working in literature, as a writer, an editor, or a reviewer, to get a copy and see what Native voice is like.' - Debbie Reese, American Indians in Children's Literature Read more See all Editorial Reviews
