A timely and provocative story about immigration and prejudice, torn loyalties and belonging, set on the New Hampshire Seacoast. Go Home is told in the alternating voices of Olive, who just wants to make a future with her boyfriend, and Samir, a Bhutanese Nepali refugee beginning a new life in America.

Early reviews

Go Home gives humanity to all of those involved in the protracted debate over immigration.

Lyn Miller-Lachmann, author of TORCH

Readers follow the leads through alternating third-person chapters as their stories gradually unfold, until their voices converge in a final chapter headed “Samir and Olive.” The teens discover a deep connection through warm moments, such as Olive’s teaching Samir to swim. Meaty and complex…a character-driven tale.
