“Or that when white people compliment her (“She’s so professional. She’s always on time”), it doesn’t always feel good, because sometimes people are gonna be surprised by the fact that she showed up, rather than the fact that she had something to say when she did.”

Emira is the babysitter for the Chamberlain family, spending most of her time with Briar (their three-year-old daughter). Alix Chamberlain is a wealthy blogger with a new baby that she seems to pay much more attention to than Briar. Early in the novel, Emira (a twenty-five year old black woman) is wrongfully accused of kidnapping Briar (a three-year-old white child) while at a grocery store.

The events that follow the grocery store incident explores relationships, race, privilege, wealth and identity. An enjoyable and interesting read.
