From the publisher

When Yamina left Algeria behind, along with the remains of her beloved fig tree, she hoped she would be creating a better life for her beloved family. At the very least, an easier one. But Yamina's children aren't convinced. Off-kilter in a country that isn't entirely their own, they don't understand their mother's calm gratitude in the face of hardship. Omar wonders whether it's too late to change course as he watches the world pass him by from the driver's seat of his Uber. His sisters are tired of having to prove themselves - and their allegiance - to a place that is at once home and not. Together, the siblings must learn that resistance takes many forms as they set out to preserve the stories of their past.
