Description

‘A new literary star’ The Times The instant Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller Longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize A Times, Guardian, Sunday Times, Telegraph, Mail on Sunday, Red, Good Housekeeping and Cosmopolitan Book of the Year 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. __________________________ ‘Essential. This year’s hit debut’ Guardian ‘A biting tale of race and class’ Sunday Times ‘I couldn’t put this down’ Jojo Moyes ‘Bites into the zeitgeist then spits it out with gusto. You really should read it, ASAP’ Stylist ‘About power dynamics, race, social commentary, and also why and how we are the woman we are’ Pandora Sykes ‘An extraordinarily deft debut, written with wisdom, kindness and sharp humour’ Daily Mail ‘A beautiful tale of how we live now’ Elizabeth Day A Reese Witherspoon and Zoella Book Club Pick
