A CODE Burt Award for Caribbean Young Adult Literature Finalist

"A hopeful story about finding one's place and the sometimes-difficult journey to self-acceptance." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"An accessible look at teen anxiety and depression . . . [Home Home] shines in its depictions of the physical and emotional aspects of anxiety and depression . . . [and] teens of color coping with mental illness will find common cause with this Trini girl's journey toward self-actualization and healing." --Booklist

"Allen-Agostini depicts the culture of her homeland with honesty and enlightening details. She perfectly captures the desperation of a young girl who is trapped between her undeniable experience of depression and what others expect of her . . . delivering important messages about acceptance and mental illness." --School Library Journal

"Break[s] down the daunting reality of depression and anxiety. Strong interpersonal dynamics balance hard themes, including homophobia, suicidal ideation, troubled parent relationships, and the minimization of depression, resulting in a quietly optimistic story." --Publishers Weekly

"Warmth and lyricism suffuse the compact text, making this a moving quick pick." --The Bulletin
