Tell Us We're Home

by Marina Budhos (Author)

Jaya is from Trinidad, Maria is from Mexico, and Lola is from Slovakia. The girls couldn't be more different, except for two things: They're all the daughters of maids and nannies in their prosperous suburban town of Meadowbrook, and they all long to fit in and succeed among their more privileged peers. But when Jaya's mother is accused of stealing some valuable jewelry from her employer, the seemingly liberal town of Meadowbrook becomes a place of ugly tensions and racism, and the girls' friendship threatens to buckle under the strain.

Once again, Marina Budhos has written a thoughtful and ambitious novel about class and the cultural differences that can both divide and unite.
