Julia Reyes is a defiant teen who lives in a troubled Chicago neighborhood with her parents and her sister, Olga. Olga seems perfect, but when she dies in a sudden accident, Julia discovers she might not have been the daughter her parents desperately wanted her to be. In fact, when Julia starts to uncover her sister’s secrets, she ironically discovers things she never knew about her parents. She discovers their fears are seeded in the tragic story of their border crossing.

Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives of twelve very different characters. Mostly women, Black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends, and lovers, across the country and through the years.

Joyfully polyphonic and vibrantly contemporary, this is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times: celebratory, ever-dynamic and totally irresistible.
