The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris Book Summary

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A Good Morning America, Esquire, and Read with Marie Claire Book Club Pick and a People Best Book of Summer

Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2021 by Time, The Washington Post, Harper’s Bazaar, Entertainment Weekly, Marie Claire, Bustle, BuzzFeed, Parade, Goodreads, Fortune, and BBC

​​Urgent, propulsive, and sharp as a knife, The Other Black Girl is an electric debut about the tension that unfurls when two young Black women meet against the starkly white backdrop of New York City book publishing.

Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagner Books. Fed up with the isolation and microaggressions, she’s thrilled when Harlem-born and bred Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They’ve only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events elevates Hazel to Office Darling, and Nella is left in the dust.

Then the notes begin to appear on Nella’s desk: LEAVE WAGNER. NOW.

It’s hard to believe Hazel is behind these hostile messages. But as Nella starts to spiral and obsess over the sinister forces at play, she soon realizes that there’s a lot more at stake than just her career.

A whip-smart and dynamic thriller and sly social commentary that is perfect for anyone who has ever felt manipulated, threatened, or overlooked in the workplace, The Other Black Girl will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist.

The Other Black Girl (Zakiya Dalila Harris) Book Reviews

Don’t waste your timeThis book lacked everything!.Score: 1/5

What on earth was that?The beginning of the book had so much promise. I’d hoped for insight and entertainment. By the end, I couldn’t stop rolling my eyes and wondering 1) if it would somehow get better and 2) when would I finally be done. Such a disappointment..Score: 2/5

A masterful page-turnerI couldn’t put this book down. I loved the characters, the suspense, and the important viewpoints. The writing is superb. I was happy to learn about things I’ve never known and see the world from the perspective of a black woman. It was shocking, eye-opening and powerful. It was brilliant and I didn’t want it to end. Instant-buy author!.Score: 5/5

Loved it.Stepford Wives meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Brilliant. First heard Audible version very good and liked it so much read ebook version. Can’t wait for film version and also more books from this author..Score: 5/5

Just Missed The MarkWhile I totally get what the author trying to do, like creating a satire/mystery, I feel like she missed the mark. The main character Nella, is just not developed enough for us to understand her logic and her responses to just about everything. The other plot that involves a decades olds situation could have been beefed up more, as that backstory was actually more interesting than Nella’s main issues..Score: 2/5

Not very goodWould not recommend this book. The writing was not focused. A million different characters and no clear direction. Very disappointed, it could have been much better if the author stayed focused. Good theme, bad story telling….Score: 1/5
