What We Left Behind

Genderqueer Australia (GQA) got an early Christmas present in the form of two copies of author Robin Talley’s new novel ‘What We Left Behind’. You can find out more information about the book here: http://www.harlequinbooks.com.au/product/9781760378448
It’s a love story with a difference, with one of its protagonists (a couple of high-school sweethearts) beginning to explore her gender identity when she goes off to college, and identifying as genderqueer.
Robin Talley’s an acclaimed writer for young adults who allows her readers the space and freedom to think about complex issues like gender identity, sexuality and race in the ‘safe space’ she creates in her
fictional worlds.
We’ve added a copy, which we are currently reading, to our library. The second copy we would like give away to one of our lucky GQA members. All you have to do is turn up to this month’s catch-up and leave your name and phone number, which will then go into a draw at 4pm on the day.
