My Review : 🌟🌟🌟🌟/5

The story revolves around two women, Emira and Alix. Emira is an African-American, working as a babysitter and living a life which she is not satisfied with. She works for Alix . Though she loves the children, she wants a more fulfilling job which will bring stability in her life and a reputation among friends who are already ahead of her in their career. Whereas Alix is living a lavish life but feels something is missing. She used to work for a cause but responsibilities are making her lag behind. But both of them don’t know that soon their lives are going to be intertwined.
The story is a breath of fresh air. Overall it is fun to read but has a dipper meaning hidden behind. It talks about social issues starting from discrimination, racism, inequality and women empowerment. The writing style is beautiful and the characters are absolutely adorable. It is a fast faced paced story without a single dull moment. It is a feel good kind of story, a light and breezy read with a touch of something to think about. The plot is catchy with certain twists which keeps you hooked till the end. Any girl in their mid 20s can feel connected to Emira who is trying to figure out what to do with her life. She is confused about her choices and which path to choose. Again their is Alix who used to be a headstrong woman but due to children and responsibilities she is losing herself somewhere. Adding to all that is their changing aspects of personal relationships and the ups and downs. It is a very normal yet heart warming story which is similar to many of our lives. I am quite sure if anyone picks it up they won’t be disappointed. It can be a perfect book for your next weekend.
