Imagine a future America where being gay is punishable by death.


Piper doesn’t have to imagine. She lives it.


Adopted siblings Piper and Easton aren’t careless. Their parents raised them with the knowledge that if they ever give themselves away, they’ll be sent to the Borstal, a dilapidated prison where deviant children–Recreants–undergo brutal treatments to cure them of their “sins.” By...

“Gay kids aren’t a “plot point” that you can play with. Gay kids are real, actual kids, teenagers, growing up into awesome adults, and they don’t have the books they need to reflect that. Growing up, my nose was constantly stuck in a book. Growing up as a lesbian, I was told over and over and over by the lack of gayness in said books that I did not exist. That I wasn’t important enough to tell stories about. That I was invisible. Why are we telling our kids this? Why are we telling them that they’re a minority, and they don’t deserve the same rights as straights, that they’re going to grow up in a world that despises them, that the intolerance of humanity will never change, that they’re worthless. It’s not true.”
Sarah Diemer

“Monsters were wild. Monsters were strong. Monsters were fierce and free.
If I was monstrous...perhaps it wasn't such a bad thing.”
Sarah Diemer

“Love had found me again, brought me back to life in the land of the dead.”
