Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue

Jende is an immigrant from Cameroon living in New York City. He works as a driver for a rich Wall Street executive. But as he gets to know more about the family he drives for, and as his wife gets involved when she's hired as a summer assistant for the family, secrets come to light. Is it his place to say something?

Behold the Dreamers circles around the dilemmas that come with ethics, morals, integrity, immigration, the haves and have-nots, and the secrets that go on in families.

I stayed up late finishing this book. It slowed down in the last third of the book, but the rest went along at a pretty fast clip.
