Orpheus Girl  

  Request this author
Queer poet Brynne Rebele-Henry’s debut novel is based upon the legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. Raya and Sarah, childhood friends in small-town Texas, discover that their feelings for each other go deeper. Queerness is ultra-taboo in their community, so much so that when the girls are found in a sexual act together, they are sent by their families to a gay conversion camp. Raya’s obsession with myths leads her to view the challenge as if she is Orpheus — she must do whatever it takes to save her love and escape with her from Hell. A whirlwind of courage, love, and sacrifice, Orpheus Girl is a triumph.” — Mary Wahlmeier, Raven Book Store, Lawrence, KS
