Spanning the years from 1935 to 2010, Are We Home Yet? is the moving and funny story of a girl and her mother.

As an adult, Katy contends with grief and mental health challenges before she and her mother attempt to heal their relationship. From Canada, to Leeds and Jamaica, and exploring shame, immigration and class, the pair share their stories but struggle to understand each other’s choices in a fast-changing world.
