Queenie! Strong, fierce, firm, vulnerable, and funny.

Queenie is a story of a British-Jamaican woman in her twenties. Set in south London, the book openly talks about sex, contraception, relationships, mental health, and STDs.

A delightful read, made me have a rethink about bottling up emotions and taking it all in.

Quite a lot of sex scenes, but it is a great read overall and yes go get it girl.

The first book of the year💪. A collection of 15 short stories. Set in Nigeria, Toni kan takes us through the life of the different characters excellently and honestly. Many of the stories are relatable, albeit heart-wrenching.

The stories are quite too sad to take in at once. Shame, guilt, corruption, and infidelity are some of the themes used in the stories.

“God is listening” and “Devil’s overtime” are my favorite stories from the collection. Children should not be left to fend for themselves, it puts them at risk.
