Summary
"An engaging and essential handbook for anyone interested in gaining insight into an oft-misunderstood community." -- Library Journal

This book is for anyone who wants to learn about asexuality, and for Ace people themselves, to validate their experiences.

2023 YALSA Great Graphic Novel for Teens

2023 ALA Rainbow Booklist Selection

2022 Chicago Public Library Best Book

Asexuality is often called The Invisible Orientation. You don't learn about it in school, you don't hear "ace" on television. So, it's kinda hard to be ace in a society so steeped in sex that no one knows you exist. Too many young people grow up believing that their lack of sexual desire means they are broken - so writer Molly Muldoon and cartoonist Will Hernandez, both in the ace community, are here to shed light on society's misconceptions of asexuality and what being ace is really like. This book is for anyone who wants to learn about asexuality, and for Ace people themselves, to validate their experiences. Asexuality is a real identity and it's time the world recognizes it. Here's to being invisible no more!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Full of good humor and positivity, A Quick & Easy Guide to Asexuality delivers on its promise to be an insightful introduction. Muldoon and Hernandez cheerfully and skillfully combine personal anecdotes with basic definitions and general knowledge to communicate a beginner's understanding of the topic without imparting harmful stereotypes or overgeneralizing. The creators' avatars discuss myths and misunderstandings with confused but usually well-meaning individuals to provide answers to basic questions about growing up ace, dating, and representation. Clear dialogue and responsively drawn faces make these conversations fun despite the occasionally serious subject matter. The lively art includes a variety of speakers as well as a few adorable axolotls and a metaphor about cake to make your mouth water. With a list of resources at the end, this brief book is a great place to start for anyone curious about asexuality. And for anyone who finds themselves on that spectrum, the creators provide numerous validating and supportive messages to make it clear you aren't alone and you are welcome."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The latest installment of the Quick & Easy series delivers a welcoming and informative guide for "asexual people, folks questioning whether they might be ace, and anyone hoping to understand more about asexuality," from cocreators (themselves "two rad aces") Muldoon (the Cardboard Kingdom series) and Hernandez. Hernandez's cheerful, cartoony art is well-suited to the lighthearted tenor of the series, and their expressive characters underscore the absurdity of some misconceptions about the asexual (or "ace") community, such as when deconstructing "Ace Stereotypes," exemplified by the robotic "asexual genius type" of Star Trek's Data character, or detailing "The Spectrum of Asexuality" with an unexpectedly nuanced and extended metaphor about cake. The team follow the series format, providing a trim but informative package, and do an excellent job moving from a big picture definition of asexuality to more insightful discussions, including discovering one's sexual identity or facing challenges that can arise, whether it's dating or disbelieving doctors. A useful resource list is included to help address some of those deeper questions. This is a clear-cut primer for readers looking to support an ace person in their own life or those questioning their own identity. (Mar.)"
