Although I think the whole story would have had a bit more bang if underlying plot came in a bit earlier (which in turn made the ending pretty abrupt), on the whole "The Other Black Girl" is a binge-able, witty, increasingly dark, and deeply interesting book! I had no idea how this was gonna end but reading the final few pages gave me literal chills. O.O

Parts of this I really liked but it goes a little off the rails in the final third and I’m not convinced they wrapped it up enough for my liking.

I can’t say much here without spoilers but I’ll just say that they may have loosely connected the dots but I wish they had colored in the details after the dots were connected.

This gave me a behind the scenes view of publishing, but it also told the all-too-familiar tale of being the Black girl in a work space. It offered a fresh view of this dilemma, because it showed what happens, when the other Black girl at work doesn't push back, and is the safe Black employee that white colleagues feel most comfortable with. I really enjoyed this book, however, now that I know the ending, I'll have to go back and reread again. :-)

I don't know exactly why, but I could not get into this. I cheated and looked up the ending online. The audiobook performances were good, but the plot felt very slow.
