Melinda yes to picture books! and preferably parents of the protagonist, but OK to include books where they're not but the lesbian mothers of another character are significant enough characters that they're the focus of the plot, for example.


message 4: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart No prob! Did you also want picture books on this list? I notice the description said "novels," so I held off. Also, I tried to stick to books where the MCs have lesbian moms. There are more books where they're parents of the MC's friends, but I wasn't sure if those would be significant enough characters.


message 3: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Oops, thanks for the info!


message 2: by Rainbowheart (last edited Jan 25, 2017 10:24AM) (new)

Rainbowheart Just FYI, The Flower Girl Wore Celery has a lesbian cousin who's getting married to her partner, not a lesbian mother.


message 1: by Shira (new)

Shira Glassman My publisher is YA but my book that's due out at the end of the month, starring a lesbian mom with a baby, is classified as 'New Adult." I can't tell if it belongs here or not. She's in her early 20's.
