Thank you Atria Books and Mystery Book Club for the copy of the book.

It's not every day I read a book that leaves me reeling for hours / days / weeks after I finished. At first, The Other Black Girl was a solid 3 star read. It was very slow but I enjoyed Harris' writing style. The premise of the plot was a good one, too. Then the plot picked up and the rating jumped a full star because that ending left absolutely flabberghasted!

I cannot wait to see what the future holds for Zakiya Dalila Harris.
