'The first time in a long time that I had a novel glued to my hands for two days' JESSIE BURTON 'Sharp and observant and pacey. Will have the same impact as Sally Rooney' PANDORA SYKES 'A book that is clever, funny and shrewd, written by an author whose empathy can make you weep and smile, sometimes at the same time. A beautiful tale of how we live now' ELIZABETH DAY 'I couldn't put this down' JOJO MOYES 'Kiley Reid is the writer we need now' CHLOE BENJAMIN ___________________________ 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 a 'personal brand' and the best of intentions, resolves to make things right. But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix's desire to help. When she meets someone from Alix's past, the two women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know - about themselves, each other, and the messy dynamics of privilege.
