      This had a lot of potential interesting set ups, compelling characters, but damn, it was all so bleak I did enjoy some of the stories but overall very underwhelming I must break the curse of the f f book

      An amazing example of the diversity of lesbian life for young american women I was impressed by this book in a way that startled me.

      I honestly don t know why I keep doing this to myself The word short is on the cover for everyone to see and yet I find myself expecting these tales to be endless I guess that says something about Julie Anne Peters and her character writing skills One has to open oneself to them, but she makes them extremely easy to bond with You are already way too invested and you have yet to start reading the second sentence Sigh AnywayI must confess that until I read Boi I thought there was a recurring theme [...]

      Much as I enjoyed these stories, I am reminded of why I read so few short stories just as I am getting invested in the characters, the story ends I d love to see Peters expand some of these into longer pieces, though, and it was nice to see some characters who weren t entirely self destructing.

      I adored this book Its a real eye opener and really sentimental to the conflicts of teens and homosexuality,A definit read

      As a straight, cis girl I didn t think i d relate to this.but I didcause it s about being humanxuality does not define us.

    9. Christina on said:

      There s a mixed bag here, and I respect the author for showing her range Rather than go with all angsty teen lesbians, or happy lesbian love stories or beaten down literally lesbians, she throws everything in with spices of originality Probably by far the best is the first story, which is absolutely none of the things above It s just a story of one teen girl attracted to another, the outcast, and daring to reach out Haven t read this YA author before, but it s so nice to know there s a new, good [...]

    10. Lydia on said:

      Peters is an excellent YA author who caters to the LGBT community In this collection of short stories, she focuses on teen lesbians and their trials and tribulations Each of these stories focus on certain emotional issues, such as how to cope with coming out to one s self Stone Cold Butch is a chilling tale of a transgender who cannot allow love to enter her life.I admire Peters work so far and highly recommend this book.

    11. Rena on said:

      The one word that came to mind when reading glr2grl by Julie Anne Peters is longing Her collection of short stories featuring young lesbians is about longings for love and acceptance Mostly the book is a bit sad, but there is some light at the end Great book for young people and anyone who wants to step into the shoes of gay youths.

    12. Amy on said:

      I loved how brutally honest it was.It shows how desperately we seek love in all we can, and how we long to be who we feel we are on the inside.

      Originally posted on Once Upon a Bookcase.As she has written so many LGBTQ YA novels, I knew as soon as I started thinking about LGBTQ YA Month that I wanted to review something by Julie Anne Peters Unfortunately, it was a bit of a struggle to find her books as they don t seem to be published in the UK I found Grl2grl, and although it wasn t exactly what I wanted at the time, I bought it And since reading it, I ve discovered it s actually pretty spot on for the month.Why Because it highlights th [...]

      It captures the textures and various colours of being a teenage gay woman really well My only gripe is the short story format, which leaves a lot of things hanging I would have loved to have some of the stories in a fullblown narrative The book, despite my tiny chagrin, is intended to be a collection of shorts and I can t totally hold that against the author.

    15. Alyssa on said:

      Another brilliant bit of work by one of my favorite authors Each story, while short in length was brilliantly written with enough information about the characters that make the readers genuinely care about each of them They all ended with me anticipating a full book for every story perhaps A great read, and rather quick.

    16. Madilyn on said:

      All the stories gripped me but that one with the chat online relationship frustrated me and the last one about two music prodigies made my heart clench Need to buy this book and add it to my collection of queer literature

    17. Heather on said:

      This was enlightening To see things from the perspective of a teenage girl young woman coming out, or being afraid to come out, or any of the other things depicted in the short stories and they re so well written There is a lot of heart in this book.

    18. Kayla Huggins on said:

      I really enjoyed the myriad of emotions these stories took me through Whether it s overcoming loss, your family or community, coming out, or learning to accept hard truths there s a lot of wisdom in this lesbian collection of short stories.

      grl2grl was an anthology of ten short stories by Julie Anne Peters, all of which featured LGBT characters Mostly L I was originally going to do a detailed review or every short story, but then I realized that since Peters wrote all of the stories, that would get repetitive So I m just going to do a general review, and write a brief paragraph on the specific stories.My favorite part of Peters s novels has always been the writing She s the master of simple prose it s always completely natural, bel [...]

      Julie Anne Peters has done just as good a job with this collection of 10 short stories about high school aged lesbian and transgendered teens as she has done with her award winning longer novels These stories address many different types of conflict that glbtq teens face from the young lesbian taking her first steps toward coming out, to the two strangers who lock eyes across a crowded train, to the transgender teen longing for a sense of self, or the girl whose abusive father has turned her to [...]

      With grl2grl Julie Anne Peters has created an anthology of young adult characters that are as different as can be The same applies to the situations they are in Whether it is first love, coming out, breaking up or simply being a woman in love with a woman, there is a wide range of situations from gentle or tender to pretty rough and extremely sad Apart from the display of variety it was simply great fun to read on because of the lively style that Miss Peters uses I loved how she managed to draw [...]

      grl2grl is a collection of stories revolving around young women and one young trans male coming to terms with their identities as sexual, romantic, pubescent young adults It is a set of stories that offers a hand to the reader to guide them through several crises of identity where the main character has to come to terms with a part of themselves they were not prepared to confront As middle school students enter into puberty, and begin to deal with adult emotions and desires for the first time, t [...]

      SlashReader I originally started reading Julie Anne Peter s work some time ago when her first books came out Define Normal , Keeping You a Secret, Luna and Far From Xanadu Though apparently Keeping You a Secret , is the only book that managed to make it up here being that I read them doing the point of transition for this group or perhaps before, I don t know Anyway Julie Anne Peter s writes a lot of moving girlgirl romance for the young adult crowd and a lot of it is pretty good if you re up fo [...]

      Julie Anne Peters book is very raw and moving In this compilation , Peters shares many fictional stories from girls and their experiences as Lesbians, Bisexual, and Curious While these stories are fictional they feel real, each overflowing with emotion Character development in this book was done through their emotions and experiences Its hard to develop a character fully in short stories, and Julie Anne Peters does an amazing job in giving her characters their chance to speak, showing who they r [...]

      Julie Anne Peters creates a stunning collection of short stories in her anthology grl2grl Over the course of ten narratives, Peters explores emotionally intense, riveting plots depicting different girls navigating their way through life Often related to girls who are either lesbian, transgender or merely questioning of their sexuality, these stories are short and straight to the point, and each feels incredibly authentic, giving the characters voices that any teen, straight, gay, or bi, can rela [...]
