Description:
Queenie Jenkins can't cut a break. Well, apart from the one from her long term boyfriend, Tom. That's definitely just a break though. Definitely not a break up. Then there's her boss who doesn't seem to see her and her Caribbean family who don't seem to listen (if it's not Jesus or water rates, they're not interested). She's trying to fit in two worlds that don't really understand her. It's no wonder she's struggling. She was named to be queen of everything. So why is she finding it so hard to rule her own life?

I really enjoying this book and found it super compelling. The writing style is easy to read - written in the first person from the perspective of Queenie as she navigates a break up, online dating, not being taken seriously in her career, her precarious mental health and a difficult relationship with her mum. Mixed in with Queenie's narrative are snippets of text and email conversations that make it a really quick but engrossing read. Queenie is a fantasically flawed and funny character, even though your watching the narrative unfold from her perspective, you as the reader are aware of how she's totally missing the reality of some situations and you're just really rooting for her to see it how it really is and love herself more! A really easy book to get absorbed in.
