In the process of researching a much larger LGBTQ in YA project (which I will post later this month, once my professor is done reviewing it), I discovered that it is very tricky to identify bisexual books for teens. Many books are included on larger LGBTQ lists, but these books are not differentiated, making it hard for the reader to tell which are gay, lesbian, or bi. Bi books are harder because the female bisexuals get put under lesbian and the male bisexuals get put under gay, often with no note that these books or characters are bi at all.
So I’ve started a Goodreads list of Bisexual Fiction in YA. There are currently 8 titles, but I’m hoping to expand it & I’m really hoping tumblarians will suggest their favorites as well. Please, only bisexual titles—not lesbian or gay!
We have several (and always hope for more) They are:
- The Bitter Moon Saga (Triane’s Son Rising, Triane’s Son Learning, Triane’s Son Fighting, Triane’s Son Rising) by Amy Lane
- Private Display of Affection by Winter Sandberg (one bisexual main character, one gay),
- Gods (Dreams of Fire and Gods: Book 3) by James Erich (again, one bisexual MC, one gay),
- Superhero by Eli Easton (one bisexual MC, one gay)
- The Battle for Jericho by Gene Gant
- Collide by J. R. Lenk
