Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams

Queenie Jenkins is a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. She works at a national newspaper, where she’s constantly forced to compare herself to her white middle class peers. After a messy break up from her long-term white boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places…including several hazardous men who do a good job of occupying brain space and a bad job of affirming self-worth.

Wow!! What an emotional rollercoaster. I had heard good things about this book and I was not disappointed. I was hooked from the very first page and devoured in 2 days.  At first, Queenie annoyed me, however, as the story developed I found myself willing her to stop travelling down the path of self-destruction based on her "bad choices". The author's writing style is so powerful.  Queenie is not a book to be missed.

As Queenie careens from one questionable decision to another, she finds herself wondering, “What are you doing? Why are you doing it? Who do you want to be?”—all of the questions today’s woman must face in a world trying to answer them for her.
