"This is a haunting and moving story of the divide between those who have and those who do not and the difficulties of reaching across that divide. The writer gives us a sensitive portrayal of the complexities of race and class in Jamaica . . . as she explores one woman's attempt to make a difference in the life of a young man from a disadvantaged community." --Judges' report, JCDC Creative Writing Competition
