Excellent debut by young Jamaican lesbian writer. A different side of Jamaica than the one most Americans see and hear about. Recommended. Look forward to her future work.

There were definite elements of this book that I enjoyed but some parts of this book were hard for me to read because as a Jamaican native myself, I kept comparing the fiction with my own experiences. I enjoyed the rich descriptions and engaging characters but hated the negative light in which several aspects of this novel cast my beloved homeland, Jamaica. I wish there had been a good character, someone who resembles me or the good people I know, to add some diversity to this novel.
