Synopsis

THE NUMBER TWO SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER



'Hilarious, compelling, painful, enlightening, honest. I loved it.' - Dolly Alderton

'Brilliant, timely, funny, heartbreaking' - Jojo Moyes

'A vital, often very funny novel' - The Sunday Times

'Inspirational, funny and wise' - Kit de Waal

'Perfect for anyone who loves Fleabag' - Mail on Sunday



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?



A darkly comic and bitingly subversive take on life, love, race and family, QUEENIE will have you nodding in recognition, crying in solidarity, and rooting for this unforgettable character every step of the way.



Perfect for fans of Dolly Alderton, Elizabeth Day, Sally Rooney and Diana Evans, and anyone who loved Fleabag.

Praise for QUEENIE:

'Candice gives so generously with her joy, pain and humour, that we cannot help but become fully immersed in the life of Queenie - a beautiful and compelling book.' - Afua Hirsch
