BSG #94: Cold Mommy / Come and Get It

We’re going back to college to talk about Come and Get It by Kiley Reid! There’s a lot to cover in the book, and issues of race, classism, and plain old mean girl behavior all come up. Plus, learn about the Squad’s weird and wonderful college jobs! Considering how much buzz Kiley Reid received for her first novel, Such a Fun Age, you won’t want to miss the talk about her latest work. Does it hold up like the first novel? Come and get it! 

And tune into our next episode for a very special episode celebrating Mary and Todd’s soon-to-be baby! The Squad will present short presentations on their favorite special topics, joined by baby daddy Todd!
