About the Author

Sonora Reyes is a queer second-generation immigrant who attended a Catholic high school. They write fiction full of queer and Latinx characters in a variety of genres. Sonora is also the creator and host of #QPOCChat, a monthly community-building Twitter chat for queer writers of color. They currently live in Arizona in a multigenerational family home with a small pack of dogs, who run the place.


"Via biting prose and insightful discussions of accountability, explicit consent, and what that looks like for one neurodivergent teen, Reyes crafts a thrilling tale of vengeance alongside sensitive depictions of sexual assault aftermath and recovery." -- Publishers Weekly

"Reyes has an unerring eye for developing tough female protagonists who are wounded but not defeated, still figuring out their place in the world but certain when they find a person worth letting beyond her barriers." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Reyes empathetically explores issues of consent and rape culture through a neurodiverse lens in this story of self-empowerment." -- Horn Book Magazine

"A fresh story exploring timely issues." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The Luis Ortega Survival Club impressively and realistically explores trauma and pain alongside joy and love. Refreshingly sincere and ultimately hopeful, this book oozes intentional care for its characters and readers." -- Racquel Marie, author of Ophelia After All
