Orphea Proud

Lambda Literary Award Finalist, New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age

As high schooler  Orphea shares her story on stage, she raises questions about family, identity and prejudice. (Ages 14 and up)

“Orphea and her horse-loving buddy, Raynor, put on one heck of a show…” Richie Partington, Richie’s Picks
“…a solid read…” School Library Journal

“…beautifully written, artfully told, and highly recommended.” VOYA

“The unusual format along with young-adult literature’s dearth of gay African-American characters, make this piece notable, but it’s Orphea’s passionate and poetic voice that makes it special.” Kirkus, Starred Review
