There have been many great and enduring works of literature by Caribbean authors over the last century. The Caribbean Contemporary Classics collection celebrates these deep and vibrant stories, overflowing with life and acute observations about society.

Three girls are on the brink of expulsion from the respected Redeemer College: 'Failure to complete term assignments, ... using foul language ... stealing another student's cell phone ... persistent lateness for English classes. Breaching the behaviour code ...' Katreena, Ta Jeeka and Caledonia are about to be written off. This insightful book unsentimentally exposes the fault lines through society, and the deep effects they have on individuals. It describes the choices people make and the decisions they feel forced in to. Maturing into young adulthood, these girls each have to make, or lose, their way, in their own way. What difference can one teacher make?
