The first queer book I ever read was A Density of Souls by Christopher Rice.
At the time of the reading, I was just about to turn fifteen and was growing increasingly frustrated with my sexuality. When I got on the bus and prepared for the ride ahead, I cracked the book open and began to read.
Halfway through, I realized something, then came to accept it without a doubt in my mind—I was gay, pure and simple, and there was nothing to be ashamed of.
A Density of Souls is, literally, the book that changed my life.
