About the Author

Amber Ruffin is the host of The Amber Ruffin Show on NBC's streaming service, Peacock, and a writer and cast member on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers. She also amazingly became the first black woman to write for a late-night talk show in American history when she joined Seth's staff in 2014, and was a writer/sometimes performer on HBO's Black Lady Sketch Show.

Lacey Lamar is Amber Ruffin's big sister. After years of working for her community, she has landed in a profession where she helps immigrants find work in their new country. Living in Nebraska, Lacey loves the challenge of creating safe spaces for the celebration of Nerd/African-American culture.


"Thank you again to the Ruffin sisters for stuffing ten pounds of truth in a (funny!) five pound bag."--Tina Fey
"A perfect follow-up to the authors' You'll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey . . . The banter between the sisters is consistently funny, but the underlying social commentary remains incisive . . . An excellent look at lived experiences of Black Americans that should be required reading for all Americans."--Kirkus, Starred Review
Praise for You'll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey:

"The book is a portrait of one person's struggle to maintain dignity, strength and self-respect when faced with injustices small and large--all told with Ruffin's irreverent, sardonic style."--People
"This timely and timeless book is hilarious, insightful, aggravating and comforting in equal measure."--Salon
"A must-read that will have Black women feeling seen and heard, and will allow others to better understand the effects of racism. With YA crossover appeal, this is also an excellent choice for book clubs."--Library Journal (starred review)
