I kept seeing and hearing about this book everywhere I went, so I decided that the universe was telling me to read it. Plus it's written by a woman of color. I'm beyond glad I picked it up. And it was at the very cute independent Pittsburgh bookstore, White Whale Bookstore! Oyinkan Braithwaite has written a stellar debut novel that is irreverent, timely, smart and bold. I read this book in one sitting, ignoring a family dinner, because I needed to know what was going to happen. It's that good.
I can't recommend it highly enough.
