The Star Side of Bird Hill by Naomi Jackson
This tautly paced coming-of-age novel of community, betrayal, and love centers on two sisters, exiled from Brooklyn to Bird Hill in Barbados after their mother can no longer care for them. Dionne spends the summer in search of love, and wanting to go home, while Phaedra investigates their mother’s mysterious life.
