Stage Dreams

By Melanie Gillman
Illustrated by Melanie Gillman

A rollicking YA western adventure full of robbery and romance.

In this rollicking queer western adventure, acclaimed cartoonist Melanie Gillman (Stonewall Award Honor Book As the Crow Flies) puts readers in the saddle alongside Flor and Grace, a Latinx outlaw and a trans runaway, as they team up to thwart a Confederate plot in the New Mexico Territory. When Flor—also known as the notorious Ghost Hawk—robs the stagecoach that Grace has used to escape her Georgia home, the first thing on her mind is ransom. But when the two get to talking about Flor's plan to crash a Confederate gala and steal some crucial documents, Grace convinces Flor to let her join the heist.

  • A spirited, inclusive romp.
  • Lush, coloured-pencil artwork gives the book a distinctive look.
  • Relevant to contemporary issues.
