A memorable debut novel on race, privilege, and money. AudioFile’s Michele Cobb tells host Jo Reed why she loved listening to this gripping audiobook. Nicole Lewis’s lively pacing and vivid characterizations enliven the story. Emira is an African American babysitter who is briefly and falsely accused of kidnapping her young charge. Lewis superbly captures the fallout from this disturbing encounter--Emira’s growing unease, intrusive behavior from the white mother who hired her, and complications from a romantic entanglement with the young white man who filmed the incident. Published by Penguin Audio.
