For the Love of God, Marie!, by Jade Sarson

Second frame of third chapter:

I picked this off the bookshop shelves ages back, and have now got around to reading it. It's a graphic novel about Marie, growing up in England in the 1960s, Catholic family and school, but herself determined to live her own life and to love who she wants. And the story then goes through to the 1990s when things are different in some ways and the same in others, through sadness and happiness. I generally liked it, but was a bit surprised that Marie didn't especially seem to have learned much or developed much over the decades. Still, it's the kind of book you could give to gently educate. You can get it here.
