For as long as she can remember, Valeria Torres has always been the girl no one cared about. Having immigrated to the United States as a child after her parents' deaths,  she tried to play by the rules as she navigated orphanages, homelessness, and a juvenile detention center.
          
But her luck is about to change.
   
Valeria discovers the Rogue Faction; a group of outlaws who use real world and mystical talents to steal from the wicked and give to the poor. Things seem to click into place as she joins a new family in New York City, goes back to school, trains as a Rogue, and makes new friends. But when Valeria discovers that two of her new friends are teenagers from a rival faction, she finds herself thrust into the middle of a conflict that could determine the fate of the world.

A story that combines elements of Harry Potter, Batman, and Robin Hood with a unique female protagonist in a GxBxG love triangle. Winner of a 2020 Watty Award, with the following review:

"It's super original, and dang, it's got so much heart. We love all the characters and their relationships. The plot covers difficult topics, but handles everything so well. You can't not fall in love with this story. We love the LGTBQ2+ and Hispanic main character as well!"
