Publisher Description

'Me name Petal. Mi pretty except fi mi picky-picky hair. Mi nah tell nuh lie. Mi head tough. It bruk comb. Well, is a good thing God invent weave.'

Petal is a young woman trying to make a life in the Kingston ghetto.

Flower is a girl taken by force to a Uyghur re-education camp.

In a short story that spans two worlds, Petal and Flower are connected through the most intimate of ways: their hair. Shocking, beautiful and empowering, Genuine Human Hair reveals the cost of racism in two very different ways, and how two women overcome it.
