"Get Out meets The Devil Wears Prada in this electric debut about the tension that unfurls when two young Black women meet against the starkly white backdrop of New York City book publishing. Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagner Books. Fed up with the isolation and microaggressions, she's thrilled when Harlem-born and bred Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They've only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events elevates Hazel to Office Darling, and Nella is left in the dust. Then the notes begin to appear on Nella's desk: LEAVE WAGNER. NOW. It's hard to believe Hazel is behind these hostile messages. But as Nella starts to spiral and obsess over the sinister forces at play, she soon realizes that there's a lot more at stake than just her career. A whip-smart and dynamic thriller and sly social commentary that is perfect for anyone who has ever felt manipulated, threatened, or overlooked in the workplace, The Other Black Girl will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist"--… (més)

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.

This one was so unexpected, I'm still trying to figure out my thoughts on it.

Check out the Diversity is Lit bookclub discussion to hear my thoughts on this one. Discussion will be on Aug 7th at 1pm PST. https://youtu.be/THnzKL_j0j8 ( )

You don’t have to whisper the word “Black”...Last time I checked, that was a socially acceptable word to use. I even use it sometimes.
With heightened awareness of cultural sensitivity comes great responsibility. If we’re not careful “diversity” might become an item people start checking off a list and nothing more—a shallow, shadowy thing with but one dimension.
She couldn’t remember who’d said it to her first, or if it had ever been directly said to her at all, but that didn't stop her from telling herself over and over again that her brown skin meant that she needed to be twice as good as the girl with the white skin...
Her colleagues, strangely, had made it clear very early on that they didn’t really see her as a young Black woman, but as a young woman who just happened to be Black—as though her college degree had washed all of the melanin away. In their eyes, she was the exception. She was “qualified”. An Obama of publishing, so to speak.
The fact that you’re Black colors every single thing anyone ever says to you—pun intended...
