Abstract

Approaching queerness as intrinsically tied to the rejection of notions of the self as fixed, stable, and monolithic, I argue that contemporary young adult literature that incorporates inter-species romances is a site of new queer possibilities. I read Marissa Meyer’s Cinder and the first two novels in Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone series as broadening current metaphors for queerness.
