I was delighted to interview Nicole Melleby and A.J. Sass about Camp QUILTBAG back in February , and I’m thrilled to announce that this beautiful book is now out in the world!
Below is my review:
What a fun read! Camp QUILTBAG by Nicole Melleby and A.J. Sass centers on a summer camp where LGBTQIA+ kids can connect with one another and have fun along the way. The book follows Abigail, a camper who is eager for camp but unsure how to make friends, and Kai, who would rather be doing parkour with eir friend at home, at least at first. Amid a scurry of fun camp shenanigans, Abigail and Kai make a pact to help one another. But this collaboration unfolds in ways that neither of them expect, and they’ll have to figure out how to trust themselves and each other as they learn more about what it means to move through the world while being proud of who you are. Highly recommended for all library shelves.
