Cael sets out to find out who he is — something he wants to know more than anything. With the help of a trusted teacher, a new friend, and his favorite book, he discovers what he knew all along.

Either Way is a graphic novel that teaches teens about the history of gay rights in America while emphasizing the recurring theme that “It’s okay to be gay. Or not. Either way, it’s okay.”

Inside you'll find three stories braided into one: a coming-of-age coming out story, a lesson on civil rights and marriage equality, and historical fiction about a gay man in the military.

And you'll read about how Cael comes out as gay, comfortable with who he is and confident that it's okay.

"readers seeking to better understand sexuality (their own or that of others) will find this an easy and accessible way to contextualize what it means to be gay in the United States, as well as the prejudices, setbacks, and successes that have accompanied changing attitudes toward queerness, coming out, and LGBTQ rights."--Publishers Weekly

"Either Way is especially commended for personal reading lists, as well as school and community library LGBTQ issues collections for young readers." --Midwest Book Review
