Cover Crush: Orpheus Girl by Brynne Rebele-Henry
Orpheus Girl by Brynne Rebele-Henry has such a beautiful cover! Remember, for Pride Month I am highlighting #LGBTQIA+ books for the month, and I am so excited for this retelling of Orpheus with two girls from Texas. I know that there are so many more queer YA books that deal with boys, so when I can feature some new and upcoming lesbian books, I can’t resist sharing especially when they are as gorgeous as this one. The soft color pallet and illustrations are so comforting. To see two girls holding hands in a romantic gesture just feels so good to see on a cover! Yes, holding hands is a big deal folx! I know last week I highlighted The Gravity of Us for the same reasons, but trust me, it’s not as common as you would think! This book isn’t going to be an easy read, but I have a feeling it is an important book.
Be sure to add this one to your fall TBR for the October 8th release date. While I am sad I didn’t snag a copy of this one at BookExpo, it is where I learned about it!
