When Emira is apprehended at a supermarket for ‘kidnapping’ the white child she’s actually babysitting, it sets off an explosive chain of events. Her employer Alix, a feminist blogger with the best of intentions, resolves to make things right.
But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix’s desire to help. When a surprising connection emerges between the two women, it sends them on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know – about themselves, each other, and the messy dynamics of privilege.
I read this book in one sitting on holiday. It was able to take poignant issues and keep them light hearted enough to digest them properly. I was engaged from the beginning and loved the well crafted characters and their stories.
I would recommend this story 4/5.
