Butler Bookshelf

This week on the Butler Bookshelf you will find The Girl from the Sea, a graphic novel by Molly Knox Ostertag. We are eager to dive into the story of 15-year-old Morgan, a young girl with many secrets and an itch to leave the island where she lives and start a new life. However, when a mysterious girl named Keltie saves her from drowning one night, Morgan begins to feel that the island is not so bad. The two girls become friends and soon fall in love–their deep dark secrets bubbling to the surface along the way. For more LGBTQ themed titles, check out the list below!
