A striking and surprising debut novel from an exciting new voice, Such a Fun Age is a page-turning and big-hearted tale about race and privilege, place around a young dark babysitter, her well-intentioned company, and a astonishing about Such a great Age group connection that threatens to undo them both.
Alix Chamberlain is a female who gets what she desires and has made a living, with her confidence-driven brand, showing other women how exactly to do the same. So she is stunned when her babysitter, Emira Tucker, is normally confronted while you’re watching the Chamberlains’ young child one night, strolling the aisles of their local high-end supermarket. The store’s security guard, seeing a young black female out late having a white child, accuses Emira of kidnapping two-year-old Briar. A little masses gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is usually furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make things right.
But Emira herself is aimless, broke, and wary of Alix’s desire to greatly help. At twenty-five, she actually is about to lose her medical health insurance and does not have any idea what to do with her existence. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix’s former, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other.
With empathy and piercing social commentary, Such a Fun Age explores the stickiness of transactional human relationships, what this means to make someone ‘family,’ and the complicated truth to be a grown up. It really is a searing debut for our times.
