She Who Became the Sun

This book fulfills the Mulan trope while actually going full in on the gay. Zhu Chongba may have practical reasons for disguising herself as a boy and taking her brother's fate, but the way her identity gets tangled up with his and her feelings on gender are nothing short of unique to her.

If you're not convinced by SCHOOL FOR ASSASSINS I'm not sure I can help you, but here's some bonus stuff to love about this book:

- Some of the most gorgeous, kinetic art in comics today

- A wildly diverse cast of characters

- A story that, even amidst all the high stakes, captures the angst of growing up and trying (/failing) to fit in

 

Get this one quick, because the TV adaptation is coming next year, and your friends are sure to be impressed by your scads of insider info when it becomes the Next Big Thing!
