by Zakiya Dalila Harris

Welcome to the dog eat dog world of publishing where Nella Rogers is the only black girl at Wagner Books. Image her delight when another black girl, Hazel, is hired and she can share her frustration over the micro-aggressions she faces on a daily basis. But is Hazel really all that she seems to be? Is she the sender of the threatening notes that Nella is receiving? Can Nella maintain her integrity in the face of the confusing messages she’s hearing?

The Other Black Girl is an entertaining, clever commentary on feeling invisible, dismissed and overlooked in the workplace. It’s also a great thriller with a chilling conclusion.
