Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid

A striking and surprising debut novel from an exhilarating new voice, Such a Fun Age is a page-turning and big-hearted story about race and privilege, set around a young Black babysitter, her well-intentioned employer, and a surprising connection that threatens to undo them both.

I breezed through this novel in a matter of days. Not only is it filled with all of the juicy personal drama required of a sizzling beach reach, but it also confronts you with powerful observations about race and class that will stay with you long after the summer is over.
