“Sie’s splendid novel is no stranger to surprises and suspense, which keep the pages turning, but it’s the fully realized, multidimensional characters that are the story’s real attraction. Both Jules and Jack are wonderfully appealing characters who will capture readers’ hearts, and watching their personal development and that of their relationship are what really capture and hold readers’ attention….”

Booklist (starred review) -

“As Jack himself points out, there are few media depictions of cis and trans men dating. This book is a welcome and successful entry into the category … A touching, romantic, and rewarding read.”

Kirkus Reviews (starred review) -

“I only just turned the last page of All Kinds of Other, and I am full of so many emotions that it feels as if there is no more space in my brain for anything else today. All I know is that I want to shove a copy of this story into as many hands as possible, and hover uncomfortably over them until they finish reading… This is such an excellent story, that I truly feels need to be read by the masses.” 

Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile -

“Whew, what a glorious book! Tender and vulnerable, All Kinds of Other is the perfect read
for anyone who’s scared of being their authentic self and needs that little ray of hope to
show them that being yourself is always worth the risk.”

The Nerd Daily -

“James Sie writes with a keen observation of human behavior and rich, breathtaking details that make his characters leap to life. All Kinds of Other is a fresh—and needed—perspective on identity: the things we protect, what we reveal and how we love. I am in awe of this book; it was hard to put down.”

Maulik Pancholy, author of The Best at It -

“It’s engaging and endearing, funny in some moments and gut-wrenching in others, but it opens eyes and minds to other stories that need time in the spotlight. We need more stories like this.”

Culturess -

“All Kinds of Other by James Sie has the makings of any great ya contemporary novel with a fresh and diverse take on the genre. It moves the reader unlike any other and provides a connection to the characters, whether you have experienced what they do or not.”

Goddess of Books -

“While it’s incredibly hopeful and wonderfully written, it doesn’t back away from the very real-life difficulties facing gay and trans kids today…This book is an emotional journey and I adored absolutely every second.” 

Jena Brown Writes -

“A warm and open-hearted story about the perilousness and momentousness of navigating your gender and sexuality. Yes, it’s dangerous to be your authentic self, but, as Jules and Jack find out, the prize is worth the risk.”
