Meet the Authors
In her debut novel, Orpheus Girl, award–winning poet Brynne Rebele-Henry re-imagines the epic of Orpheus as a story of dysfunctional families, first love, heartbreak—and the fierce adolescent resilience that has the power to triumph over darkness.
When 16-year-old Raya—obsessed with ancient myths—is caught in an intimate moment with her true love, Sarah, they are sent to Friendly Saviors: a re-education camp meant to make them heterosexual. Upon arrival Raya vows to assume the mythic role of Orpheus to save them both and to return them to the world of the living, at any cost.
