YA & Children’s Books I Recommend on self-harm, sexual abuse, LGBTQ, & more

Did you know that I have an Amazon ebookstore where I recommend books on a lot of issues that I talk and write about? I recommend YA books on self-harm; sexual abuse; physical abuse; neglect; dealing with death; lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer (LGBTQ); teen pregnancy; not fitting in. I also recommend some YA books that have magic and fantasy in them, or paranormal or psychic aspects (we all need an escape from our world sometimes).

I also list some picture books that deal with issues such as being yourself; dealing with emotion; inner strength (strong girls, and boys, too); lesbian/gay/bi/trans/queer (LGBTQ); and sexual abuse.

I also have a section of books on writing technique for writers.

These books are only a starting point; you’ll find many more, but they’re books I recommend and that help break silence and deal with issues that we need to talk about, read about.

I reviewed a lot (but not all) of these books on my blog (search “review”) and website.
