Talia discovers her sister is gay. Will it change everything?Grades 4 to 7 middle-grade novel for ages 8-12
by Gail Marlene Schwartz and Lucie Gagnon
In My Sister's Girlfriend, 11-year-old Talia struggles to understand and accept her sister's (Jade) sexual identity. Talia is also not too happy that Jade has less time to spend with her since the arrival of Jade's girlfriend, Emily. It's as much a story of opening up and learning to share beloved family members with others as it is about a family coming out.
