Hi everyone *waves*
I was hoping you guys could help me with some recommendations for my seventeen year old sister. She's only recently come out to me and her friends at school, but not my parents. I want her to know that I'm still there for her even though I'm at university and away from home. She's a reluctant reader/gets bored easily, and likes the kind of fluffy chick lit books, books set at the beach, and issues books (in particular anorexia-themed ones), but says that the hetero romance puts her off them a lot of the time. She really wants to read something relating to her, with a girl/girl romance.
I really wanted to send her a couple of books with f/f romance and not full of angst. Like, ones where the character accepts their sexuality and is not ashamed, like a lot of LGBT YA out there.
(I'm not meaning to offend, there's nothing wrong with those sort of books at all, I just don't think they're what she needs right now.)
I just don't want her to have any more stress about who she is and whether it's wrong, I just love her and want her to see that girls can fall in love and be happy with girls just like with boys.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
