Laura Knight Keating performs this first-person narrative, pulling listeners into Raya's life as her world is shattered. Born and raised in a conservative Texan town, abandoned by her mother when she was a baby, Raya builds a home in the arms of her best friend and first love, Sarah. When the two are publicly outed at a school party, they are sent to a brutal conversion camp, and Raya vows to do everything she can to rescue Sarah--and herself. Laced with allusions to Greek mythology, this heartrending YA novel flips the Orpheus myth on its head, with Keating's raw voice guiding listeners deeper and deeper into the depths of darkness while Raya fights to keep a tenuous grip on hope for escape.
