    'A new literary star' The Times

    A Reese Witherspoon and Zoella Book Club Pick
    A Sunday Times, Guardian, Times, Daily Mail, i, Grazia and Evening Standard Summer Read

    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 the best of intentions, resolves to make things right.

    But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix's desire to help. When a surprising connection emerges between the two women, it sends them on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know - about themselves, each other, and the messy dynamics of privilege.
