"When a book that sets out to do good turns out to be as good as this one, we are all winners."-- Katherine Paterson in "The Washington Post""The question we all ask, 'Who am I?, ' is answered in this warm, wise, wonderful bundle of stories that should be read only by males, females, gays and straights. The answer, of course, is, 'You are not alone.' This book can mend families and save lives." -- Robert Lipsyte"We are grateful to Marion Dane Bauer for bringing us these moving stories by distinguished writers: stories showing us that whatever our individual differences may be, they can be celebrated. And just as important, showing us that at the very core, we are more alike than different." -- Patricia MacLachlan""Am I Blue?" is a brave, new spaceship of short stories about love and loving. A millennium work, on the journey to glimpse our full humanity."-- Paul Zindel
