The Girl From the Sea by Molly Knox Ostertag

A beautiful story about having the courage to be who you are no matter what others think about you. A girl who is a lesbian gets befriended by a selkie (make bold). They have a nice romantic relationship for a while until the selkie tries to complete her mission.

I like how Norse/Celtic mythological creature of the selkie is woven into this tale of young love. I can’t speak to how authentic this L.G.B.T.Q.I.A.+ story feels to someone from that tribe, but for me it was a sweet story with cute graphics. I think it has a positive message about not trying to hide how you are from your friends, if they’re really your friends, they’ll understand. I like the way the author illustrates the way the friends text each other. It’s something someone of my generation or younger understands instantly.
