About the book
When 13-year-old Zuri begins cutting herself, psychologist Ana is called in to help. Is the troubled girl trying to relieve the tension of being black in a predominantly white private school? How healthy is Zuri’s relationship with Helen, the white single mom who adopted her? And what happened to Zuri’s biological mother?
Reckless, alcoholic Ana must piece together the puzzles of both Helen and her daughter – while battling an old trauma of her own.
Come and listen to Newham-Blake discuss her moving new novel in which two women, equally damaged by the past and its secrets, discover that healing sometimes lies in unexpected places.
