#BookReview: Home and Away by Candice Montgomery

About the Book:


Tasia Quirk is young, Black, and fabulous. She's a senior, she's got great friends, and a supportive and wealthy family.

 She even plays football as the only girl on her private high school's team.

But when she catches her mamma trying to stuff a mysterious box in the closet, her identity is suddenly called into question. 

Now Tasia’s determined to unravel the lies that have overtaken her life. 

Along the way, she discovers what family and forgiveness really mean, and that her answers don’t come without a fee. 

An artsy bisexual boy from the Valley could help her find them—but only if she stops fighting who she is, beyond the color of her skin.




About the Author: Candice Montgomery is an LA transplant now residing in Seattle. By night, she writes YA lit about Black teens across all their intersections. By day, she teaches ballet to teen boys and works in the land of sobriety and rehab. It is the goal of her stories to interrogate the spaces of race, love, the body, and sexuality, all while being a witness of life.
She is represented by Jim McCarthy of Dystel, Goderich & Bourret.

Recommended Age: Young Adult
Genre: Contemporary



My Review: I really felt like at some points this book depicted a situation perfectly but then others I really felt that the MC was really sucky to her parents. It is a real suck fest for the most part I just wanted to slap the girl across the face some times. And I ultimatly gave up on it about 60%in.
