Here and Queer: A Queer Girl’s Guide to Life

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Here and Queer is a new, very short book by Rowan Ellis. It’s bright. It’s loud. It’s a good beginning primer. Let me preface this by saying that the information presented in the book is good, if nothing new from other books on the subject. It’s brevity is a double-edged sword. For someone just starting out learning about queer terminology, this isn’t a bad place to start. For someone wanting more than just very bare information, it won’t fill the need. It doesn’t seem like a “guide to life.” It does, however, have a list of books and resourced at the back of the book, which I have to give it props for.

I would say this is the type of book a librarian or educator might have sitting around for someone, and by that I would probably mean tweens exploring where they fit in the LGBTQ spectrum, who wants to quickly familiarize themselves with some terms and doesn’t know where to start.
