Lovely and hopeful and sweet. I was torn between devouring it and trying to make it last. ( )

A gender-fluid prince and his dressmaker BFF. I loved this super cute graphic novel about being true to yourself - which applied both to Sebastian, who sometimes wanted to dress as Lady Crystallia, and to Frances, who in order to protect her friends must hide her talent and temper her own ambitions.

A story about identity, loyalty, friendship, and having the courage to show yourself to the world. Glorious. ( )

This book is charming, sweet, and poignant all at once. And the art is beautifully drawn. ( )
