About

Overview

A New York Times Bestselling Author
Named one of the Most Anticipated Books by Women’s Day, Newsday, Publishers Weekly, Bustle and Book Riot

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 breakup with her long-term white boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places — including several hazardous men. 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.
