Review of Such a Fun Age
I really enjoyed this book and it is perfect to read at the current time. This is a well paced story by a debut author that centers around Emira, who is a black girl, and her employer Alix who is living a life of white privilege. Emira is a babysitter for Alix’s children. Alix is determined to befriend Emira and this is complicated by the differences in the lives of the two women. While also seeing the differences between them there are also similarities that make their relationship even more interesting. I found this to be a fascinating and relevant story that I highly recommend.
