Summary When sixteen-year-old, mythology-obsessed Raya and her true love, Sarah, are sent from their conservative Texas town to a re-education camp, Raya assumes the role of Orpheus to save them.
Raya-- abandoned by her mother, obsessed with ancient myths-- lives with her grandmother in a small conservative Texas town. For years she has hidden her feelings for her best friend and true love, Sarah. When the two are caught in an intimate moment, they are sent to Friendly Saviors: a re-education camp meant to "fix" them and make them heterosexual. Subjected to abusive and brutal "treatments" by the staff, 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.
