Queenie Jenkins can’t cut a break. Well, apart from the one from her long term boyfriend, Tom. That’s definitely just a break though. Definitely not a break up. Then there’s her boss who doesn’t seem to see her and her Caribbean family who don’t seem to listen (if it’s not Jesus or water rates, they’re not interested). She’s trying to fit in two worlds that don’t really understand her. It’s no wonder she’s struggling.
She was named to be queen of everything. So why is she finding it so hard to rule her own life?
This is a book that is rightly so being hyped, the covers itself justify that alone! But queenie is a debut that will stay with me for a long time.
I saw myself in queenie in so many ways, i laughed ,cried and nodded my head in agreement.
Funny, witty ,so relevent to todays society but it is also a heartbreaking personal account of how things can get on top of us . This reminds us that we are human we can make mistakes and grow.
I absolutly loved this book .
Candice is a phenomal writer and i wish her every success and cant wait to see what she creates next.
