“Positively brilliant. I was completely blown away by this debut, in which 25-year-old Queenie Jenkins is navigating a lot. She recently went on break from a long-term relationship, she can’t seem to find her stride at her job with a national newspaper, and she’s constantly trying to figure out how to navigate the various components of her identity. The biggest question of all: Can’t she be loved just because, without her blackness being seen as exotic or a caveat? Candice Carty-Williams’ debut is a completely fresh voice that shines light on a literary perspective frequently overlooked — that of young, black women. An absolute must-read.”
— Destinee Hodge, East City Bookshop, Washington, DC

Winter 2019 Reading Group Indie Next List


“Wow! Queenie is a fabulous read—absolutely amazing. This book took me through the paces. There were laughs and tears; I was sad and angry. I wanted to shake some sense into Queenie and fight for her—just so many emotions. I understood Queenie because I know her. She is my sister, my cousin, my friends, and at times she is me. She embodies the emotional roller coaster that so many women ride every day. Mental health is important, even for the strongest of women. A wonderful debut!”
— Kim Brock, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Cincinnati, OH
