When a supermarket security guard sees a young Black woman out late with a white child, he assumes the worst. By the time he understands that the woman is the child's babysitter, she's angry and humiliated and her employer is determined to rectify the wrong. Herself a long-time babysitter to wealthy Manhattanites, Reid infuses her eagerly-awaited literary debut with pitch-perfect details of class and race; writing with energy and insight, Reid, who was awarded the prestigious Truman Capote Fellowship at the Iowa Writers' Workshop, tells a rich, compelling, and urgent story about transactional relationships, showing what it really means to make someone "family," and exploring the consequences of doing the right thing for the wrong reason.
