The Luis Ortega Survival Club by Sonora Reyes

Staff Pick

Despite cute clothes and journalistic aspirations, Ari struggles to be noticed by her peers, who just see her as an autistic girl who doesn’t speak. When she catches popular Luis’s attention, things rapidly escalate, and, though Ari doesn’t consent, they have sex at a party. Rumors spread, then an anonymous note leads Ari to a group of kids Luis has harmed and who want to expose his predatory behavior. Deftly tackling trauma, queerness, and difficult parent-child relationships, this book is a testament to friendship, love, and the fact that, in Reyes’s words, revenge is good, actually.
