She wished she could be part of her world

True love’s kiss begins a summer romance between Morgan, a closeted teen, and Keltie, a mythical selkie. The book features themes of self-acceptance and changing life plans to fit your fluid needs and circumstances. Fans of sweet teen romances, magical realism, and coming of age tales will enjoy this. While the story includes the sting of teens’ malice toward outsiders, I was left crying happy tears at the bright days the girls spend together. The book calls to mind the prominent LGBTQ+ characters, expressive line work, and bold colors of Casey Nowak and ND Stevenson.
