Published: Soho Press - July 10th, 2018

Go inside this marriage that looks perfect on the outside, but is very different on the inside. This fantastic book looks at queerness outside the white centric lense we usually see it represented and shows the struggle of queer people outside of Western culture. This book asks the question: What is more important, your cultural heritage or your self identity?

A beautiful contemporary tale of a flawed 25 year old Black British-Jamaican woman trying to live in a world that seems to only want to knock her down. Queenie shows the aching strength of what it means to carry two different cultures and trying to find where you fit in either. Extremely heartbreaking and heartwarming!

This book might be the most devastating book I've ever read, but also the most amazing book I've ever read. This 720 paged book is not for the faint of heart, but if you take the chance, you'll come out of it a different person. Highly recommend, but please book a therapy appointment for when you're done.
