The Girl from the Sea by Molly Knox Ostertag is possibly one of the best books I’ve ever read! I really enjoyed how it included LGBTQIA+ representation by making the main characters Keltie and Morgan lesbian lovers. Morgan is a girl who believes she must hide her true personality, and the fact that she is also part of the LGBTQIA+ community, from her friends and family. When she meets Keltie, she starts to see that she doesn’t need to hide who she really is.
This book is a fantasy Graphic-Novel with beautiful illustrations such as the amazing island where Morgan lives. I would recommend this book for ages 12-16 years. I would also recommend this book to anyone in the LGBTQIA+ community. I give this amazing book a 5/5-star review.
