Sharina's book follows four long-time friends as they reach their thirties and reevaluate the directions their lives have taken. She describes one of the inspirations for the story was an Oprah interview with Viola Davis, Alfre Woodard, and Gabrielle Union, where they were lamenting the lack of parts available to Black women. Sharina decided then and there to write a book that would offer four woman of color a challenging role and the result is her debut novel. Let’s hope Netflix is paying attention!
