_______________



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.

A first for me

I have read coming of age story’s before but never one like this. This was a very good book. It open my eyes a bit more to issues surrounding race. It explores how people who think they are helping may actually being doing more harm then good.
