(1 customer review)

£8.99

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.

  1. Paula Fullerton

    Another great book chosen by Bert as part of my subscription package. I confess I usually avoid the Booker list but after reading this I may think again. Funny and insightful Such a Fun Age was a book to make you think about privilege and perspective. I also love it when you get a character you can really dislike. Briar’s mother is just awful.
