"'[B]rilliant, timely, funny, heartbreaking.'--Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You; Bridget Jones's Diary meets Americanah in this disarmingly honest, boldly political, and truly inclusive novel that will speak to anyone who has gone looking for love and found something very different in its place. 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. 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. With 'fresh and honest' (Jojo Moyes) prose, Queenie is a remarkably relatable exploration of what it means to be a modern woman searching for meaning in today's world." -- Provided by publisher.

Relatable submitted by ldibble on July 30, 2021, 4:27pm This book is a great sliding door to borrow from Dr. Bishop! The story is relatable to anyone who has ever dated and is sprinkled with references, dialogues, and interactions that either reflect a part of you back or give you insight into another culture in delightful ways. The relationship dynamics are heartrendingly woven. Great read.

A Bit of a Heartbreaker submitted by LMahlmeister on August 6, 2021, 9:56am I finished this book in a day, and it was one of those books that you softly close the cover on and hug to your chest- then immediately return to the library so someone else has the chance to hear Queenie's story. You will fall in love with her.
