Steel Magnolias meets Dracula
Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl

🏳️⚧️ “Orlando” but today
By Lisa Taddeo
You need a strong stomach for strong themes for this one. Gritty, graphic, gripping tho.
For teens (& adults who retroactively need excellent fiction)
Queer YA fiction that I rate 5/5.
The House in the Cerulean Sea
By TJ Klune
🏳️🌈 The gay YA antidote to HP. An absolute joy to read. Affirming and beautiful.
All Our Hidden Gifts
By Caroline O’Donoghue
🏳️🌈 Ordinary girl discovers magical tarot abilities, falls in love, & solves mysteries
(IMO - for late teens+ bc while the queer elements are excellent, it does address anti-LGBTQIA+ issues as they occur to side characters.)
Leah on the Off Beat
By Becky Albertalli
🏳️🌈 You can watch “Love, Simon” for backstory then launch right into this.
Bisexual, female protagonist. 💯
