From that wisdom comes Out!, the ultimate coming-out survival guide. Find validation, inspiration, and support for your questions big and small—whether you’re exploring your identity or seeking to understand the experience of an awesome queer person in your life.

Praise

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Any teen with questions about gender identity and/or sexuality will find heart, humor, and essential guidance in McKenna’s book, and so will the adults looking to support them. An indispensable first purchase." 
School Library Journal
"Energetic and lovingly written memoir... McKenna acknowledges the weight of coming out and reminds readers that he’s only an expert at being himself, urging readers to likewise live authentically."
Booklist
"This coming-out guide for the next generation hits all the right notes... The pictures tell the best story of all: that of a young man who’s comfortable in his own skin. A worthy read for teens, tweens, and their parents."
Kirkus Reviews
