Author J. L. Campbellabout this book: Raised in a hotbed of arguments and fights, eleven-year-old Christine Simms is the victim of her mother's temper and cruelty. A domestic dispute ends in tragedy, sending the family into a tailspin.

Uncertainty surrounds Christine and her four siblings when they lose their parents. Bright and responsible to a fault, Christine challenges the adults around her to ensure that suitable arrangements are made for what's left of her family.

A shocking discovery sends Christine on a quest to find the stranger who left her behind in Jamaica many years ago. Who is this woman? Why would she leave and withhold contact since her departure?

Determined to unravel the mystery of her birth, Christine uses every tool at her disposal and treads with courage where no child should. The answers she unearths are not always to her taste, but Christine faces her new life with bravery and hope.

Christine's Odyssey is told from several points-of-view, which offers readers a rich experience and an inside view of Jamaican lifestyle and culture.
