A coming-of-age story about Jamaican Canadian identity, love, passion, chosen family and rediscovering life’s pleasures after loss.

After the mysterious death of her twin sister, Jade Brown, a twenty-four-year-old first-generation Jamaican woman living in Toronto, must find a way to pick up the pieces and discover who she is without her other half.

Grappling with her grief, Jade seeks solace in lovers and friends during an array of hilarious and heartbreaking adventures. We follow her as she investigates some of life’s most frustrating paradoxes while holding tight to her connection with her high school friends and ex-girlfriend as a lifeline between the past and the present. Through a series of whirlwind love affairs, parties, and trips abroad, Jade stumbles toward relinquishing the weight of her trauma as she fully comes into her own as a young Black woman and writer.
