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.… (mais)

Recommended: Yes!!
For people who are ok with honest depictions and discussions of all kinds of sex, as well as racial barriers barriers women face. For those who are ok laughing while reading a book ^.^

OHMYGODDDDD. Okay, I'm not usually one to fall into hyped books, but man this is hyped for a reason. Candice Carty-Williams promotes writing about underrepresented perspectives, and she leads by example! I hardly ever get to read from the POV of a black character, particularly a black woman, and it was enlightening as a suburban white girl who's never lived in very diverse areas. I learned what a weave is! But Queenie is also just such an enjoyable woman, even when she's at her worst points, you don't dislike her. You just feel her pain, because who HASN'T been there before? It's also hilarious, and I laughed out loud while reading enough to prompt my boyfriend to ask if it was a comedy book. Do yourself a favor and just read it. I'll be waiting. :)

I went into this expecting standard rom-com chick lit and got something else entirely.

Queenie is 25 and a real mess: She’s breaking up with her boyfriend, estranged from her Mom, screwing up at work and drowning her sorrows in reckless, casual sex.

I assumed that all her problems would he solved when she fell slowly in love with her nebbishy co-worker or a guy she “met cute” but that’s not the case! We deal with her downward spiral and how it impacts her life and relationships and how she starts to right the ship again.

A fast read, couldn’t put it down once I started.

Queenie Jenkins is a Jamaican British woman in her mid-20s, whose break-up with her boyfriend is one of the catalysts for a mental health crisis. Much of Queenie is about how she learns to work through past traumas, realise that she's not okay, and come to a better understanding of herself.

This is Candice Carty-Williams' first book, and it has a lot of the typical problems associated with a debut novel: the character voice is strong but much of the characterisation is sloppy and sometimes verges on the cartoonish; Queenie is at times a believably warts-and-all protagonist, but at others she reads more like a 15-year-old than a 25-year-old; the tone and the content sometimes clash. (The marketing for this is fairly inexplicable—this is not a light, Bridget Jones-esque comedy.) That it's a quick and compelling read despite those issues is a testament to Carty-Williams' promise as a writer. I'll keep an eye out for further books by her, even though I didn't really love this one. ( )

Kurze Inhaltsangabe
Queenie sucht nach ihrem Platz im Leben, so wie Millionen junger Frauen auf dieser Welt. Aber die Londonerin ist Schwarz und erfährt Tag für Tag, dass das noch immer einen Unterschied macht. Im Büro zum Beispiel oder wenn Männer glauben, sich bei ihr alles erlauben zu können. Und Queenie lässt sie, trifft eine falsche Entscheidung nach der anderen. Erst als es fast zu spät ist, stellt sie sich endlich den wichtigen Fragen: Wie kann ich die Welt zu einem besseren, gerechteren Ort machen? Und mich in ihr ein bisschen glücklicher? ( )
