nv there are no labels used but she does say at some point around the beginning of the book that she's wanted girls and she's wanted boys but she hasn't wanted anyone enough to pluck them from her old life and bring them to her new one
Alexandra The Librarian Definitely very obviously attracted to girls! There is a clear beginning of a relationship between Hetty and Reese. I'd argue Hetty's lesbian, but I could be misremembering or forgetting details since I read this a while ago. I don't think it's wrong either way to say she's bi or lesbian.
