'Will have the same impact as Sally Rooney' PANDORA SYKES

Alix Chamberlain is a woman who gets what she wants and has made a living showing other women how to do the same. So she is shocked when her young black babysitter, Emira Tucker, is accused by a security guard of kidnapping the Chamberlains' toddler at the supermarket one night. A small crowd gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make it right.
But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix's desire to help. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix's past, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other.
With empathy and piercing social commentary, Such a Fun Age explores the awkwardness of transactional relationships, what it means to make someone 'family', the complicated reality of being a grown-up and the consequences of doing the right thing for the wrong reason.

Untitled
'Such a Fun Age' is a debut novel with a larger than life heart. It tackles races and privilege with in a fresh new tone and an extremely readable style. However don't let the readability distract from the heartful societal observation Reid captures between a young black babysitter and her benevolent employe. - Maddie (QBD)
