Book Review - Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid

 

Alix Chamberlain is used to getting what she wants. She has built her entire empire on using her confidence to ask for things and showing other women how to do the same. She is shocked when she finds out her babysitter, Emira Tucker, was confronted while watching her daughter, Briar, one night at a high end supermarket. The security guard was approached by another customer who is worried that a child is out late with someone who doesn't look like her mother. The situation becomes escalated and Emira is accused of kidnapping Briar. The commotion causes a small crowd to gather and a bystander films everything. Emira is furious and embarrassed by the situation and Alix resolves to remedied the situation.  

I was looking forward to reading this book since it got a lot of positive reviews and as a person of color. However, I can't say I was a fan of this book. I found the book to be boring. I couldn't relate to any of the characters and could care less what happened to them. I thought the whole entire book was rather pointless.
