When a depressed Trinidadian teenager is sent by her mother to Canada to live with her lesbian aunt she feels lonely and Home Home is about a trinidadian girl who deals with depression and extreme anxiety and who after an incident is sent to temporarily live with her aunts in Canada In this book we talk about the tabu that there is in Trinidad about mental health and about being ueer We also see how she didn't seem to fit in because she didn't care about the standards of beauty What can I say about this book? Well sadly I did not connect enough with the main character to feel for her I wanted to care because I've been there but I just didn't It wasn't until after the 50 pages mark that it got better and by better I mean it went from 2 stars to 3 stars and this book is 100 pages long This book could've been better if it wasn't because it was too short to dig deeper into the themes In the last fifty pages we got a tiny bit of drama but not enough to care about it and in those same fifty pages everything was resolved Overall this book was a good read but nothing wowRating ⭐⭐⭐

Home HomeCcept her new family and her illness Then her mother arrives and threatens to take her back to Trinidad Where then is hom Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this arc which I received in exchange for an honest review I'll post that review upon publicationUpdated 52720 3 starsWhen the novel begins readers learn that Kayla the mc has recently moved from Trinidad to Edmonton It's apparent due to an early panic attack that Kayla is struggling with than her recent relocation In fact Kayla is now living with her aunts after attempting suicide while under her mother's care a term I'll use loosely here since her mother isn't actually the most caring person My favorite parts of the novel are Kayla's periodic journal entries In this therapeutic exercise she reveals personal information which makes it easier to connect with her and understand her actions and motivations The relationship between Kayla and her aunts runs a close second I did not love the way in which a potential romantic partner served as a partial cure for Kayla's depression It's possible to be in a fantastic relationship and still experience mental health issues and vice versa I'm not sure this messaging is exactly on target for any reader but especially for impressionable teens Yes this development can be lumped in with everyone's goal of getting Kayla to experience the world shop attend her aunts' BBs and work out but this subplot didn't work for me On a related note I found the early scene with the cop so disturbing and was bothered by the way in which the adults seem to laugh it off 'oh just flirty until they know your age' business There's a rightfully sinister series of thoughts that lead into that scene an interaction that is extremely uncomfortable and then we just move on What? Finally I wanted to see Kayla's ideas surrounding the LGBT community evolve a bit faster than they did This work covers some essential issues and Kayla and her aunts are uite admirable overall I'd have liked to see some development here as well as some evolved considerations in the noted areas
