"This book is more than a collection of writings by queer youth-it's a celebration of their lives, their challenges, and their triumphs, a document of their culture that's long overdue." Lori Selke, editor of Tough Girls
"Aren't all books with fierce, young voices supposed to evoke Holden Caulfield? Shouldn't I say something like: `Becoming is The Catcher in the Rye on hormones and enrolled in Harvey Milk High?' But Becoming is so over Mr. Caulfield's brand of coming-of-age. This collection does no less than remind us-no matter what age, orientation, or gender-that we are all constantly becoming."-T Cooper, author of Some of the Parts
"Becoming, with its broad range of rarely heard voices, is sure to bring comfort to those who identify and insight to those who don't. Diane Anderson-Minshall and Gina de Vries have done queer youth, their friends and family, and the world of readers a great service."-Lisa Jervis, Bitch magazine.
"Becoming is a powerful, necessary collection of queer youth writing...this collection of bold, provocative, often challenging essays, stories, poems and interviews presents views that are (sadly) rarely heard, but deserve to be."-Rachel Kramer Bussel, co-editor, Up All Night
