This book moves quickly and yet it’s characters develop slowly. Revealing themselves layer by layer. Ultimately both the “woke” white characters end up revealing their true selves leaving the African American character with nothing and isn’t that just the sad reality/allegory for today’s America. A very smart and clever exploration of white privilege in today’s society.

None of the characters are very likeable - all make pretty poor decisions and have to live with the consequences. Reid's previous book dealt with race relations in a more realistic manner. This book was a little far fetched. Didn't enjoy. Narrator was good.
