Taproot: A Story About A Gardener And A Ghost by Keezy Young. Roar Lion Forge, 2017. 9781941302460.
A sweet, LGBTQ-friendly graphic novel about a ghost named Blue and Hamal, the gardener who can see him (and other ghosts). There’s a spooky looking dark place ghosts can suddenly find themselves and a scythe-wielding being called a Reaper (who is after a necromancer in our world, and wants Blue’s help), but mostly this is a sweet romance with a lot of nice moments and great colors. It’s low-key enough for middle and high schools, though I think older students and adults with good taste will enjoy it the most.
