A stellar debut that peels back the layered tales of Caribbean youngsters who grew up away from their parents before migrating to join them in Britain. The story of Windrush has come into painfully sharp focus in recent years but what is less well-known is the story of the children of these pioneers whose parents left to rebuild Britain and they only knew of through the ‘barrel' care packages sent back. These are the children’s stories of reconciliation and rediscovery within a new world that made little sense to them.
