Affluent entrepreneur Alix is appalled when her babysitter Emira, a young Black woman, is accused of kidnapping Alix's (white) daughter in a local market. To make things right, Alix resolves to take the aimless twenty-five-year-old under her wing. But her mentoring plans are disastrously upended when the boyfriend Emira brings to Thanksgiving dinner is someone from Alix's past. Told from alternating perspectives, this thoroughly modern take on an upstairs/downstairs trope sizzles with biting social commentary, hilarious satire, and provocative insights on race and class in America. It's great book club fodder! (AG)
