Six queer historical YA romances

At the BN Teen Blog, Nicole Brinkley tagged six top queer historical YA romances, including:
Honey Girl, by Lisa Freeman

Picture a queer romance set on the beach. In 1972. With surfing, an intense Mean Girls vibe, and mentions of star signs on every page. Sound up your alley? Congratulations: you need Honey Girl! After her father dies and her mother uproots and moves them to Santa Monica, Nani’s only wish is to follow her own set of rules, an unspoken list that turned her into queen of the beach when she lived in Hawaii. But with secrets of her own piling up alongside a growing affection for Rox, the current queen supreme, becoming head of this beach might be more difficult than she anticipated.
