Comedian Amber Ruffin ("The Amber Ruffin Show") and Lacey Lamar are sisters and co-narrators of this hilarious romp through a series of unfortunate encounters with the racially ignorant. They take turns narrating their no-holds-barred commentary on the incidents that happen to Lacey, a Black woman, in homogenous white Nebraska. Ruffin and Lamar are upbeat as they share their sharp wit, which helps to buffer the underlying racism in each account. The audiobook peels back the layers of how often and how absurdly poorly Lacey is treated, and it's both infuriating and laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes all within the same moment. Don't miss this engaging and educational listen. M.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
