Synopsis: Blue is having a hard time moving on. He’s in love with his best friend. He’s also dead. Luckily, Hamal can see ghosts, leaving Blue free to haunt him to his heart’s content. But something eerie is happening in town, leaving the local afterlife unsettled, and when Blue realizes Hamal’s strange ability may be putting him in danger, Blue has to find a way to protect him, even if it means . . . leaving him.
Why we love it: It’s a refreshingly sweet love story, with a different focus on gay characters than just struggles with homophobia. It’s also a touch spooky. A very cute graphic novel you will want more of as soon as you finish!
