Book Title: Queenie
Author: Candice Carry-Williams
Queenie is one hell of a character- a working class black British woman going through series of challenges and struggles while trying to stay sane all at the same time. She goes through a breakup which she believed ‘is taking a break’ and that the relationship will resume after the break the has ended. This leads her to make some bad decisions.
Queenie had challenges in practically all areas of her life, like no break; from her relationship to her health, her job&colleague, her friends even her family is not left out in this equation. Her emotions were all over the place, trying to figure things out.
I liked the fact that she always speak out against racist comments, and not try to play cool with it. Queenie is my girl, but there were times I really wanted her to snap out and just forge ahead, like girl you deserve better than what you are giving yourself now.
This book has some funny characters like Aunt Maggie and Kyazike. Queenie is good and fun read. Do well to check the book out and share your thoughts with us @herstoryng_ on social media.
