Nail It: Breaking into the Black Elite (A Novel) by Shonette Charles is a good read that revolves around the black fraternity. Noah and Sahara are well educated and when they move to North Carolina, it gives them the opportunity to make a breakthrough into the social circle of black society. They are the elite of black society, holding memberships in the Darlings, the Shield, and many other groups that add to their status. Though Noah adjusts well to society and glamour, Sahara struggles to find a footing in a world of sophistication and money. Reeking with double standards and lies, surviving in that society can actually be hard. Will Noah and Sahara be able to strike a balance and be happy?
The book captures the essence of urban society and the elegance and chic elements are well described. The characters of Noah and Sahara have been realistically sketched and the story reveals much about the lifestyle of elite black society. The book is descriptive and there is a bit of explicit language, but it's essential for readers to comprehend the aura of pedigree, success and wealth. The author keeps up the fluidity and pace of the plot from beginning to end, making it an engaging story. The story is light and breezy and readers will enjoy its sophistication, pace and glamour. The excellent cover design will grab readers' attention as it connects well with the inside contents.
