“Readers searching for positive, nuanced, and authentic queer representation - or just a darn good selection of stories - need look no further than this superb collection.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
Take a journey through time and genres to discover stories where queer teens live, love, and shape the world around them.
Seventeen young adult authors across the queer spectrum have come together to create a collection of beautifully written diverse historical fiction for teens.
From a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood set in war-torn 1870s Mexico featuring a transgender soldier, to two girls falling in love while mourning the death of Kurt Cobain, forbidden love in a 16th-century Spanish convent, or an asexual girl discovering her identity amid the 1970s roller-disco scene, All Out tells a diverse range of stories across cultures, time periods and identities, shedding light on an area of history often ignored or forgotten.

Every Book Should Be This Book
Of course I have favorite chapters, but this Whole book is the best thing to ever happen to writing. There are stories here that literally made me gush with a feeling of "ohmigod me too😍" and "yes, of course, yes, yes, this." I listen to it all the time now, literally on repeat. #goodshit
☹️ Glad it was several shorts instead of 1 long on
Slow . Message was clear but boring. Performance was ok. Overall just not my style.
My favourite queer audiobook! Absolutely amazing stories which really draw you in! I never wanted this series of stories to end!
