This set of five compact volumes covers issues of relevance to teens. Each volume has one main overview of the topic and is divided into subtopics that contain quotes, explanations, facts, and illustrations. The illustrations consist mostly of charts and graphics and are easy to read. Following the subtopics are sections listing key people and advocacy groups, a chronology of the topic, related organizations, source notes, and sources for further information.Kyla M.

This entry in the Compact Research: Teen Well-Being series offers a succinct but informative survey of
issues and challenges confronting LGBT teens. Content is presented in an introductory overview and four
succeeding chapters dealing with topics that range from how teens know if they are LGBT to how they can
get help. Because the overview addresses issues covered later, there is a certain redundancy to the book,
but, happily, these redundancies tend to reinforce rather than simply reiterate content. While there is little
new information here, the book is useful as a handy intro guide to a wide and varied field. Appended
material includes highly selective lists of related organizations and key advocacy groups. Readers seeking
a more comprehensive look at the subject may wish to consult James Dawson’s This Book Is Gay (2015).
