Title: Such a Fun Age
Authors: Reid, Kiley
Genre: Fiction
Year: 2020
Language: English
Description: There's a perfectly plausible explanation as to why Emira Tucker has three-year-old Briar with her in an upscale Philadelphia supermarket late on a Saturday night. However, the store's security guard is having none of it because Emira is black and Briar is white. Emira, the well-educated young woman that she is, is a babysitter for the Chamberlain family, Peter a news anchor, and Alix, a feminist blogger. Following the 'incident', which just happened to get recorded by a bystander, life is about to get interesting in ways that none of them could possibly have imagined.

Clever and thought-provoking, this is a nuanced examination of race and privilege in the here and now.
