Gr 3--6--This self-proclaimed "rainbow of biographies" is just what young readers need. Whether children are looking for mirrors or windows, they are sure to be empowered by reading Clemesha's volume. Featuring 25 biographies with photographs, the text spotlights familiar and lesser-known Americans who are members of the LGBTQ community. Each person included in the collection provides a fascinating, unique journey. Readers learn about artists, musicians, scientists, and activists that overcame tremendous adversity as they identified and came out as LGBTQ. Celebrities like talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and comedian Wanda Sykes appear alongside social justice advocates such as Bayard Rustin, who was kept out of the public eye during the civil rights movement because he was gay. Stories like his will spark curiosity and meaningful conversation. The design uses bright colors, standard and colorful typeface, and vibrant borders to keep readers engaged. Readers will be inspired and find their passions validated and renewed after picking up this title. VERDICT Every library needs this book, which can bring in a variety of readers who may or may not be on their own journey of self-discovery.--Kelly Finan Richards, Baltimore Cty. Public Sch.
