Book Review: The Black Girl Next Door
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There are so many things I could see about myself in this book. There are also plenty of dissimilarities as well. Baszile grew up privileged, and as the title tells – the black girl next door. The memoir covers Baszile's youth and teenage years and her struggles to find acceptance and peace within a family who's exterior doesn't necessarily reflect the reality. All in all, a really fast-paced and interesting look at life as an outsider.
