ladyk444 - Fast-paced Familiarity with Quicker, Spotty Ending
I loved the pace, sweetness of caretaker/child characters, complex racial issues, spot-on modern humor and story twists. The ending was very weak and rushed. The book could of ended when she left the Chamberlains house and it would of been a stronger finish.
GF D - Kept waiting for it to get good
What a boring book. Black girl nannies for rich white family of which the wife had a high school boyfriend the nanny is dating. Ok. And then...? Nope, that’s it.
TeezyTaughtYou - It was okay
The thing that attracted me most to this book was over in the first few pages. Then wondering where it could go I was taken in by the story and character building. However I felt lost in the message, and intentions with the whole babysitter relationship and things felt weird. Ratchet ending when the whole book was on another level. Overly decent book for a distraction read, not much to take from it unless you can't relate to Emira*
nathan blackman - Nonono
This has gotten me to the point of no return, the fact is that this book... IS THE WORST BOOK IVE EVER READ IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. The fact that we move so fast into it doesn’t let the reader sink in the emotions of the character, when I read a book I hope it gives me a bit of realistic reading to open a new page of imagery in my brain, this, this has just made me mad. I seriously do not understand as well why people read this book as well, this book has been trashed by a bad storyteller that rushed things up like a last minute school project which in this case has gotten a very bad grade in my book.
Pixxxxxxxi - Great Read!
I stayed up late trying to finish reading this book. What a page turner, and it’s not even a mystery! It reminded me a bit of some of Liane Moriarty’s books, only not so... white.
This book is well written, with clever wit and jokes that made LOL IRL. The characters were real, believable, and the narrative regarding the implications of race and socio-economic class in their shared experiences was well crafted. There is no way to say this without sounding like some basic white chick trying to be “woke” but as a person with little personal connection to black culture I want to understand others experiences better so that I can take a seat and let others speak.
I agree with other comments that this novel is a great perspective on how ignorant and unaware people can be and a great commentary on how people interact in the world. We are all experiencing the world through completely different lenses.
No spoilers but I found myself wishing at the end that Emira had been more vocal, but I don’t think it was wrong for the character for things to play out the way they did. I also just finished reading it like an hour ago so I may just need time to mull over it a bit. This is the second book I’ve read recently where a young female character has had a similar anti-climactic climax, I wonder what that says about the way women writers write women, or the way we think we should behave. Or maybe that’s a strength, because these are not the ways a male character would behave?
kmoore.hickory - Don’t know why I bought this
Somehow the preview read of this book seemed good. But after that, I didn’t even recognize the story anymore. Not what I expected. Didn’t like the story or the characters. I stopped reading after a few chapters.
Bosslady17 - Loved it
I was really surprised that this book was so good! This book is a reminder to never assume and that people are rarely self ever self aware.
kaykaybean13 - Number one newest fan!
This author is incredibly talented and her characters that are multi diverse and multi generational leave you breathless and spell bound. You fall in love with the protagonist and her rich and diverse personality and perspectives in which she sees the world and those around her. Beautifully written with just the right touch of humor and lightness when delving into sensitive and very current issues
Mhazen - Could not put down.
Just wow. What a fun captivating book that really tied it all together. I found myself wanting to not put this down and read it every second of my day, disappointed only when it ended. Character development and progression was captivating. Especially Amera and Alex. Made me think of when I was younger and things were less important. But really puts into perspective the different socio economic situations that people can be put into and how we as a society can be so ignorant and unaware sometimes.
MiamiCarole - Has me thinking
When a book has my evaluating my own perceptions, then I know it accomplished its goal. I think this an excellent read and will make a fine film. I do think the story got a bit messy half way thru but the ship righted it’s course. Looking forward to the Authors next book.
MES3414 - Couldn’t Put This Book Down
A great read! Thought provoking and impactful. Makes you look at yourself and your own thoughts long and hard.
aaronique3 - Good book
I hated emira’s lack of a voice but great book overall.
KiKi & Bernsey - Excellent
