Hidden Gems of Queer Lit: “Mermaid in Chelsea Creek” and the Chelsea Trilogy

“If you adore any of Tea’s other books, you’ll find Mermaid in Chelsea Creek to be every bit as transgressive and illuminating. If you ever escaped into the magical realms created by J.K. Rowling or Tamora Pierce, or if you got hooked on what dystopian YA like the Hunger Games had to say about class and privilege, you’ll relish Mermaid’s intriguing mixture of magic and social realism.”
