I pre ordered this book because of the premise The complexity of what happens at the cross section of racial stereotypes especially with differing points of view seemed compellingI spent 80% of this book FURIOUS For context I m a black woman and that influenced how I read this bookAlmost all of the characters in this book were infuriating The character of Emira the 25 year old college graduate with no real future comes across as undeveloped She s written with three different personas the sweet and seemingly only woman to understand and cherish three year old Briar who s complex personality is confusing for such a little person but okay the uiet and almost uneducated employee of Alix some of the interactions had me wondering about Temple s degree program and a partying mid twenties friend and girlfriend that is depicted as the real Emira The problem is none of the personas are written well they all felt like underdeveloped caricatures that needed complexity Emira stresses about job security and health insurance the entire book to the point of being jealous of her friend s successes and having valid fears about paying bills yet she didn t start applying for ANY jobs until her friends made her It s one thing to not know your place in life after college it s another to seemingly not know how to put yourself in any position to better your situation This is made clear over and over again Emira despite being surrounded by resources of all types knows nothing about how to do better for herself This mindset is exactly what Alix preys on and where the complex of saviorism comes into playMoving on to Alix The entitlement and saviorism had me livid I will say that I appreciated the insight into her thinking especially when she was talking with her friends Alix s perspective is one that I know exists but never will truly understand I will never know what it could be like to be a white woman with the world and people at her fingertips The best writing in this book was with Tamra Jodi and Rachel because in those moments I could truly appreciate the dilemmas that Alix felt she had Otherwise she was selfish unaware entitled and absolutely disgusting Her depiction of the hell of her senior year felt overexaggerated for her to still be affected 15 years later She s clearly done well for herself get over it To find out that spoiler alerts in the remainder of this paragraph Kelley was right about the letter after all and that she chose to play out a victim narrative for FIFTEEN YEARS is exactly what s wrong with the world today Before I found out that she invited Robbie to her house unintentionally I didn t have a problem with her calling the police In that moment those kids were trespassing on her property without her permission But knowing that SHE KNEW at the end GAHI m so furious I almost can t finish this review But here are a few shorter thoughts to wrap up what s uickly becoming a novelKelley I can t decide if Kelley truly fetishizes black peopleculture His only interactions with white people were always negative is this why he gravitates to black people or the othe way around I don t know Alix went out of her way to find out that Kelley s other girlfriends were all lightskinned or exotic and that Emira was the exception Yet another white person in this novel who wants to save a black person especially one with darker skinTamra Yet someone else trying to save Emira but this is supposed to be okay because black on black saviorism is okay Yeah noEmira s friends love the support system but the characterization of slang dress affectation etc is over the top It s possible to be relaxed with your friends and speak properly I promiseAnd then the ending SPOILER ALERT What was truly resolved Emira s still undecided what to do with life even after her boss literally told her to move up and on Briar is seemingly still ignored although it s unclear if there s a new black nanny in the picture No changes from Kelley either just back to his standard black arm candy to make himself feel better about his life choicesIt only gets a two for the friendship stories those were well written Outside of that I d give this zero stars if I could and I could have done without reading this book

I pre ordered this and had high hopes Premise was very interesting and I was anticipating a satisfying read This book was very poorly written The author makes sure she lets you know that she attended some prestigious workshops but I honestly didn t see any evidence of that Her African American characters were almost caricatures Even down to the syntax in the way they spoke in the book All the characters white and black were outrageous parodies it was almost comical This read like a cheesy young adult novel Tantalizing premise good early beginning but this is just swamped in juvenile writing and rife with racial stereotypes I don t want to reveal spoilers but this wasn t a good book I felt as though it an especially egregious attempt to be politically correct and cover all those bases It failed miserably on several counts What a waste of a pre order
