Such a Fun Age

Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid was another great 2020 read. I LOVED it. Reese Witherspoon chose it as a Hello Sunshine read and I have seen it in my Instagram feed over and over for the past few weeks, so I BOUGHT it. Those who read this know I NEVER buy books. I am so glad I picked this one up. Amazon describes: “Emira Tucker is a 25 year-old living in Philadelphia with two part-time jobs (typist and babysitter) and no health insurance. One night the mother of the child for whom she babysits calls upon her in an emergency, and Emira—clad in her “going out” clothes—takes the toddler to a yuppie grocery store, only to be accused of kidnapping by a security guard and fellow shopper. You see, Emira’s employers are white, and she’s African American.” Other complications ensue. This is a real page-turner and the only reason I put it down was that it was a busy week and I fell asleep. I highly recommend this one. 2020 is starting off really well on the book front!
