Winner of the 2022 Speaker's Book Award. This book recounts the story of a child who spends her life navigating between two very different worlds in Toronto. Alone, Anais and her mother teetered on the poverty line, sharing a mattress in a single room in Parkdale, while her grandparents lived on the mansion-lined Bridle Path. The book offers a powerful lens to explore how two families, one white and one Black, faced systemic oppression spanning multiple generations and came out at opposite economic classes—and how they clashed when they shared a granddaughter.
