Special Order—Subject to Availability

Avis Phillips is a young girl of Jamaican heritage who suddenly finds herself in a new country after emigrating with her brothers to live in Canada, where her once idyllic life changes in an instant.

Avis struggles to make sense of her role as a daughter, her relationship with her mother, her self-worth and value, her faith, and her tumultuous home life.

Inspired by true events, including the abuse Avis suffers at the hand of her mother, the tensions of the family dynamic, gender roles, racism and coming to terms with her new life, this YA novel has cross over appeal and is as powerful and memorable as Precious, Room and iconic titles like Brown Girl in the Ring.
