“Juliet Takes a Breath” by Gabby Rivera
‘LGBTQ Latinx Students Share 12 Must-Reads’ glsen.org
Recommended by Cruz: This book focuses on Juliet, a chubby Puerto Rican nineteen-year old queer girl from the Bronx. Gabby Rivera captures what it means to live as an LGBTQ youth and person of color, including the pains of growing up, coming out to family, tackling white privilege, and going through long-distance relationships. This book really resonated with me as a young gay Chicanx.
