Publisher's Summary

In the Piedmont of North Carolina, two families' paths become unexpectedly intertwined over 20 years. Jade and Lacey May are two mothers determined to give their children the opportunities they never had. After a harrowing loss, Jade wants to hand down the tools her son, Gee, will need to survive in America as a sensitive young Black man.

Meanwhile, Lacey May, having left the husband she loves, strives to protect her three half-Latina daughters from their charming father's influence. When a county initiative draws students from the largely Black east side of town into a predominantly white high school on the west, each mother stands on different sides of the integration debate. Gee meets Lacey May's daughter Noelle during the school play, and their families begin to form deeply knotted, messy ties that will shape the trajectory of their adult lives. And their mothers make choices that will haunt them for decades to come.

What's Mine and Yours is an expansive yet intimate multigenerational tapestry of motherhood, identity and the legacies we inherit. It explores the unique organism that is every family: what breaks them apart and how they come back together.

Critic Reviews

"What's Mine And Yours dips into many genres - part coming-of-age novel, part family saga, part social commentary, it doesn't shy away from addressing racial tension, the hopelessness of addiction and how sometimes the choices parents make to better their kids' lives end up doing the opposite." (Stylist

"What's Mine and Yours is a book about parents who try and fail and then try again. An extraordinary cast of characters, nuanced and full of insight. Read this book." (Angie Cruz, author of Dominicana

Disappointing

This would usually be a favourite genre for me. The whole thing was disjointed and shallow. Few of the characters were likable. An abrupt and unsatisfactory ending.
