Reprint. Originally published: New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2019.

'A new literary star' The TimesThe instant Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller Longlisted for the 2020 Booker PrizeWhen 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. __________________________'Essential.
