Shortlist - 2021 Bad Form Book of the Year
Three Black women - a powerhouse executive, a former model, and a Somali refugee - are linked in unexpected ways to the same influential white man in Stockholm
Executive Kemi Adeyemi is lured from the U.S. to Sweden by Johan von Lundin, CEO of a large marketing firm, to help fix a PR nightmare. Kemi has poured her entire heart and soul into her career, but she's neglected her love life. This move is a last-ditch effort for her to start over and inject romance into her life.
A chance meeting with von Lundin in business class en route to the U.S. propels former model Brittany-Rae Johnson into a life of privilege and luxury as the object of his obsession.
And Somali refugee Muna Saheed, who cleans von Lundin's toilets, desperately wants to find her family after losing everything.
In Every Mirror She's Black, Lola Akinmade Akerstrom explores the minds of three Black women as they navigate finding balance in their careers, living with wealth, and learning to find acceptance in the most open society run by the most private and often judgmental people in Sweden.
