I read this book and it’s one of my favorite religious LGBT books I have read. Definitely recommend it.
LGBTQ* Young Audience Literature To Keep On Your Radar
(Positive Queer Christian Characters)
The God Box — Alex Sanchez
High-school senior Paul has dated Angie since middle school, and they’re good together: they have a lot of the same interests, like singing in their church choir, and being active in Bible club. But when a new boy, Manuel, transfers to their school, Paul has to rethink his life. Manuel is the first openly gay teen anyone in their small town has ever met, and yet he says he’s also a committed Christian. Talking to Manuel makes Paul reconsider thoughts he has kept hidden, and listening to Manuel’s interpretation of Biblical passages on homosexuality causes Paul to re-evaluate everything he believed. Manuel’s outspokenness triggers dramatic consequences at school, culminating in a terrifying situation that leads Paul to take a stand. (from Alex Sanchez’s Website)
