Synopsis

It's 2017 at the University of Arkansas. Millie Cousins, a senior resident assistant, wants to graduate, get a job and buy a house. So when Agatha Paul, a visiting professor and writer, offers Millie an easy yet unusual opportunity, she jumps at the chance. But Millie's starry-eyed hustle becomes jeopardised by odd new friends, vengeful dorm pranks, and illicit intrigue. A fresh and intimate portrait of desire, consumption and reckless abandon, Come and Get It is a tension-filled story about money, indiscretion and bad behaviour - and the highly anticipated new novel by acclaimed and award-winning author Kiley Reid.

A Girls Dorm in Arkansas. What could possibly go wrong?
This is a strange book. Maybe, it started off as a film script or maybe it started off as several film scripts? Whatever the origins, it’s an odd read. ... READ MORE
