Wow oh wow, this book is so special, and so lovely, and so dear. This book is a gift to the world. In Prince and the Dressmaker, we meet Prince Sebastian of Paris, who is working hard to uphold a good image for the kingdom with a lot of weight on his shoulders. And part of that weight is his biggest secret: at night, he dresses in stunning gowns and becomes Lady Crystallia, a Parisian icon of fashion and beauty! Not a soul knows Sebastian’s secret, until the palace’s new dressmaker Frances discovers his secret, and the two become best friends, working together to create more and more stunning dresses and looks for Lady Crystallia, until this secret begins to conflict with Frances’ dream of becoming a world-renowned dressmaker... This book is gorgeously drawn and fantastically written, a story of love, friendship, and most of all, being true to yourself. This book is an absolute fairytale!

This book was a fantastic story about two kids discovering who they are and how they want to present themselves to the world. Frances is a daring seamstress who has caught the eye of Lady Crystallia a beautiful fashion trend starter. But the world doesn't know that Lady Crystallia is Prince Sebastian and Frances must decide if she wants the world to know about her work, even as it threatens to expose her friend's secrets to the world. Jen's illustrations captures the emotions of the character's so creatively. I also loved the information in the back of the book about her creative process.

This powerhouse teen graphic novel follows Becca, the new girl at school, who is immediately chosen to join the coolest clique of girls in her school. These girls are eerily close-knit and hold a secret, one that Becca is soon pulled into: the coolest girls in school are werewolves, preying on boys who take advantage of girls without consent! Squad is a classic over-the-top teen-flick storyline with a fabulous cauldron brew of horror, queer representation, and searingly relevant commentary on consent and predation, featuring young women taking back their power and holding boys accountable. The perfect read for the next full moon!
