newest debut sensation 
debut sensation out of the UK by Candace Carte Williams Sadly it was not my cup of tea or a ew reasons Firstly the good things about The Book Are The Writing book are the writing the natural dialogue and the act that ueenie does get that mental health care that she so desperately needs However as a whole this book is based on too many black women stereotypes I really Conquering Your Quarterlife Crisis: Advice from Twentysomethings Who Have Been There and Survived feel the author should have toned that down I m also not enjoying that this book is being pitched as the black Bridget Jones Diary These two books aren t alike at all ueen was not a comedyor me I Mexican Hooker feel like it s an exploration of how a black woman watching abuse as a child and being abused affect her choices of men later on The book s concentration on ueenie s promiscuous lifestyle at times was hard to read and certainly was notunny I would even say it could be triggering to some readers Since the book is being pitched as humorous in the UK I had to ask myself who the target audience is supposed to be The author doesn t seem to disagree with that pitch because I haven t seen her say the contrary I also eel the cover was another way to attract black women to want to read ueen although knowing what s in between the covers I believe many black women would pass on it I don t recommend it A tiresome novel that made me cranky Everything about ueenie screams middle school angst ueenie and her crew think and act like 12 year olds trapped in 25 year old bodies Take away some of the sex replace their jobs with 7th grade classes and you have the tedious dramas of adolescence I liked the clever use of texts That s about it This is the kind of novel whose excellence sneaks up on you The beginning is kind of rocky and I wasn t sure where the book was going but then it gets great and unputdownable and I held my breath reading as ast as I could to see what would happen to ueenie This is an amazing novel about what it means to be a black girl whose world is The Thirteen-Gun Salute falling apart and needs toind the strength to put it back together There is so much ground covered here rom dealing with anxiety and self loathing to complicated amilies and learning to let go of things and loathing to complicated amilies and learning to let go of things and that won t serve you well And ueenie is the kind of narrator you cannot help but root The Day Fidel Died for even as she makes infuriating choices Wonderful wonderful novelull of charm and wit and warmth and energy Check it out 5 shiny rebellious beautiful stars As soon as I started this book I thought I was having a light reading Because the book is advertised as modern version of Bridget Jones But after a ew pages later I realized this is deeper heart wrenching darker and twisted story of a young woman who is looking or a tree branch to not all down rom a cliff ueenie has really a bad year but it s not about her broken heart after her breakup or.
