Genre: Coming Of Age Fiction
My Rating: DNF @ Chapter 6
Okay, seriously..what the F is going on?!! This is the second DNF in a row! 🤦♀️
This is one of THE hottest books and everyone from your mom, your neighbour, the bus driver (you get the picture), has read it or is reading it right now!
Again, I find myself another unpopular opinion, and probably the only person who actually didn’t like it. 🙈
The first chapter had me hooked, but it all went downhill from there.
This book had such great promise, but never delivered. It was SO not what I thought it was gonna be! I was expecting this amazing and powerful read like The Hate U Give.. Maybe that was the problem. My expectations were waay too high!
From chapter 2 and on, I kept waiting for the story to get better and something to happen, but it never did. I really didn’t care to hear about Alix’s life as a new mom or Emira’s night out with her friends. I wanted more of the night at the grocery store and it’s after affects! Not, Today’s Parent meets Cosmo magazine.
This was just one hot mess for me! From the choppy writing to the dialogue..ugh..
Have you read this one yet? Did you love it like so many others did?
Alix Chamberlain is a woman who gets what she wants and has made a living showing other women how to do the same. A mother to two small girls, she started out as a blogger and has quickly built herself into a confidence-driven brand. So she is shocked when her babysitter, Emira Tucker, is confronted while watching the Chamberlains’ toddler one night. Seeing a young black woman out late with a white child, a security guard at their local high-end supermarket accuses Emira of kidnapping two-year-old Briar. A small crowd gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make it right.
But Emira herself is aimless, broke, and wary of Alix’s desire to help. At twenty-five, she is about to lose her health insurance and has no idea what to do with her life. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix’s past, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other.
