I throughly enjoyed this combination of a light, engaging read,, with relatable characters that was also serious and thought provoking.
Reid does an amazing job of intertwining tough issues, such as racism, class, privilege and feminism in a very captivating, and at times funny, story without being “heavy handed.” I actually didn’t realize how many important issues were being addressed until about halfway through the book. This was very refreshing in a day and age where opinions are often shoved down your throat.
The cast of characters are brilliant, relatable, interesting and truly will make you feel all the feels from sadness to disbelief to love.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to Reid’s next novel. Thank you @netgalley, @putnambooks and Kiley Reid for my readers copy. All opinions are my own.
