The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dahlia Harris was one of the best surprises I’ve had in a while. I went into this book not knowing the plot details and I’m so glad. I’m not going to tell you anything about the story so you get the same benefit. What I will tell you is it will grab your attention and is full of wit and sly social commentary. A book with a very creative and utterly unique plot line and one that makes you think during and after reading. (Plus, it’s backdrop is a large publishing house so books and authors are highlighted throughout - always a bonus for avid readers!) I’d recommend this for your next bookclub read. Not everyone will love it but you’ll want to discuss it!
