LGBT YA books in 2013: good news and bad news

A see-through background for comment section (100% text visibility)

To make your comments more readable you may have decided to put a uniform background under a comment section. But wouldn't it be awesome to make it transparent so they are more readable while your background image (presumably an awesome one that you want to show off) remains visible?
