It's sometimes hard to find an lgbtq+ teen romance that doesn't have coming out anxiety at its epicenter, but this one is much more concerned with navigating other insecurities and life stuff, which often feels like a relief. It is a fun, soft summer read that never quite answers the question of what might be the best burger in Los Angeles--but it does provide plenty of other things to think about.
We have it on our shelves today! Check it out!

Tom begins to retaliate in an effort to stop the parties, and one retaliation leads to another in this surprisingly charming, silly, and sweet story of one high school summer. This book is loosely based on the ancient tale of Beowulf and Grendel, so if you've read it, you may enjoy it even more (reading Beowulf is NOT necessary for reading this book).

...this is NOTHING like that. This comic series, which is set in the 1960s (evoking classic horror film Rosemary's Baby) is genuinely spooky and chilling, while the art also manages to really evoke the feel of the era.
If you're interested in the Riverdale tv series, this takes place in the Archie universe with some great crossovers with Betty and Veronica. If you're interested in other teen horror comics (Emily Carroll's Through the Woods and Vera Brosgol's Anya's Ghost come to mind) this also might be right up your alley. We'll be getting in a hard copy sometime this month (along with some of the Riverdale comics!) or you can read it for free online using Hoopla Digital! I personally loved it.
BONUS: filming just began for a Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Netflix original series!
