Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid
It is late on a Saturday night when Alix asks her babysitter, Emira, to take her toddler out for an hour because of a family emergency. It was only a short trip to the supermarket, but when a neighbor sees a Black woman with a young white child, she has the security guard detain them. A bystander videotapes the incident, and things spiral. Emira is desperate to forget that anything even happened, while Alix is set on making things right. Such a Fun Age is a smart, thoughtful novel that you will want to discuss with your friends. Perfect for book clubs.
