I enjoyed this debut novel from author, Kiley Reid. It's not my normal read though. It feels like what others call "a summer beach read" despite a plot which touches on racism, the subject du jour. Other reviewers elsewhere cast criticism on the dialogue as if they were expecting or seeking more of a screed than the story the author chose to write. I enjoyed this for what it was and found it very, very readable with interesting characters. I think this is a perfect "summer beach read" whether or not you enjoy that sort of thing.
