“Alix’s world became a place defined by Pack-‘n-Plays, white noise machines, chafed areolas, and grapes cut in half.” 💙

Fantastic and thought provoking novel about class, privilege, race and consent. Reid is really great about articulating a lot of truths in a very honest and relatable way. There were definitely characters I loved to hate and many cringe worthy moments. But it felt very REAL. I loved how Amira, the main character, is figuring out life as many 25 year olds do. The struggle is real. Health insurance needs are real. And trying to figure out who is friend and foe is real. This would be a great book club book because it is so layered and has so many elements to discuss. Mostly, I loved Amira. I was rooting for her and her big heart. Wonderful debut by Kiley Reid. I was able to hear her speak and she is so engaging that it’s no surprise she can write such a page turner. It was also fun to and read with this month! 💙
