Inspired by the Greek myth of Iphigenia and the Grimm fairytale “Brother and Sister,” Michelle Ruiz Keil’s second novel follows two siblings torn apart, struggling to find each other in early ’90s Portland. All her life, 17-year-old Iph has protected her sensitive younger brother, Orr. But this summer, with their mother gone at an artist residency, their father decides it’s time for 15-year-old Orr to toughen up at a wilderness boot camp. When their father brings Iph to a work gala in downtown Portland and breaks the news, Orr has already been sent away against his will. Furious at her father’s betrayal, Iph storms off and gets lost in the maze of Old Town. Enter George, a queer Robin Hood who swoops in on a bicycle, bow and arrow at the ready, offering Iph a place to hide out while she tracks down Orr. Orr, in the meantime, has escaped the camp and fallen in with The Furies, an all-girl punk band, and moves into the coat closet of their ramshackle pink house. In their first summer apart, Iph and Orr must learn to navigate their respective new spaces of music, romance, and sex-work activism — and find each other before a fantastical transformation fractures their family forever. Told through a lens of magical realism and steeped in myth, Keil’s Summer in the City of Roses (Soho Teen) is a dazzling tale about the pain and beauty of growing up. Keil will be joined in conversation by Emilly Prado, author of Funeral for Flaca.
