I haven't read Loveless yet, but I want to. My mom says I have a lot of books already, but 2 of them are 3rd person and I really try avoiding 3rd person books if I can. They're just not as interesting because I don't know what the character is directly thinking. But yeah, Loveless is about asexuality and "That's Not What Happened" has an asexual character, but if you are sensitive to topics about violence I'd steer clear of that one.

Felix Ever After, Out of Salem, and I Wish You All the Best!! I haven’t read I Wish You All the Best yet, but I’ve heard it’s really good. Also if you plan on reading Out of Salem I should probably give you some content/trigger warnings, so just ask in case you want them!! It’s a kinda heavy book so be warned!!

Edit: I forgot about cemetery boys it’s the most recent book I read and it was really good too

I personally recommend "The art of being normal" by Lisa Williamson, which is about a trans girl and a trans guy. I found it in my school library and really enjoyed it. Also I was looking at a thread on reddit about this exact topic yesterday, you could definitely find something good from there https://www.reddit.com/r/FTMMen/comments/qwbozh/books_trans_male_representation/ wink tongue

my ela teacher had one in her library called heartstopper!! It’s a graphic novel about a gay high schooler who recently got outed and his relationship with a Totally Absolutely Straight Guy No Gay Feeling Here At All who by the end of the book is heavily questioning and it has a cliffhangerrrr

very wholesome

She also had a book about some lesbians in a blood apocalypse called bleeding earth it’s pretty cool
