I’m just going to say that, in a way, whoever wrote the blurb for All Boys Aren’t Blue isn’t really doing a great job selling it. I’ve never personally heard of George M. Johnson, so to only know that this is a memoir about his life as a black LGBTQ+ who fought for their rights isn’t really telling me much? I feel like this is an important book and yet simply reading the synopsis doesn’t make me want to read it if that makes sense?

all boys aren't blueFarrar, Straus and Giroux has bought world rights to journalist and LGBTQ+ activist George M. Johnson's YA memoir, All Boys Aren't Blue. The memoir takes stories from his life growing up as a queer black teen to show readers how they can fight for themselves or be allies in the struggle for equity and equality. Publication is set for winter 2020.
