***2021 Michael L. Printz Honor Book (for Young Adult Literature)***
Every Body Looking is a story written in engaging verse about Ada, a young dancer just starting college. Among other young people who are different from her, Ada starts to have flashbacks to childhood. Getting away from everything familiar, and with the help of a creative art form to open up, Ada comes to see why she is the way she is and who she really wants to be. There is queer friendship and love, and there is healing. Ada’s readiness to spread her wings will resonate with many a young reader.
