"For each group of essays, Abate and Kidd raise questions ... about 'the canon' and the relationship between queerness and canonicity; identity politics and the transformative power of children's literature; and how queerness moves among nonnormative readers, reading practices, and genres. Taken together, these tensions highlight the fundamental questions underpinning queer approaches to children's and young adult literature, which scholars will inevitably face as we navigate the flexible and shifting meanings of queerness."
