Even if I love graphic novels, I don’t get to read many of them. One, it’s rare that I find an e-copy edition, and as far as I know, libraries here don’t cater for them or at least not the ones that have come out in recent years. My sister discovered Z-Library and passed the site on to me, where I found The Girl from the Sea by Molly Knox Ostertag and Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker.
The Girl from the Sea has the most beautiful shades of blue. The author found the cleverest to deal with enlivenment and sea issues in a middle-grade story. It was pretty realistic about what a young person is when first dealing with self-identity and sexual orientation, which brings with the fear of not being accepted. Mooncakes was special to me for a couple of reasons, disability representation with Nova being deaf and learning how wearing hearing made her feel.
Then, we have Tam using They/Them pronouns, and I was so to see how Nova’s grandmas made it feel so easy when they were told that Tam uses they/them. Now that I’m thinking about it, I think the grandparents are lesbians, but I might be wrong here. I also got Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me by Mariko Tamaki; however, the font used made it unreadable with my dyslexia, so I had no choice but to DNF it.
