Queenie Jenkins is a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. She works at a national newspaper, where she’s constantly forced to compare herself to her white middle class peers. After a messy break up from her long-term white boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places…including several hazardous men who do a good job of occupying brain space and a bad job of affirming self-worth.

As Queenie careens from one questionable decision to another, she finds herself wondering, “What are you doing? Why are you doing it? Who do you want to be?”—all of the questions today’s woman must face in a world trying to answer them for her.

With “fresh and honest” (Jojo Moyes) prose, <span class=”a-text-italic”>Queenie </span>is a remarkably relatable exploration of what it means to be a modern woman searching for meaning in today’s world.Age Range: Adult


<strong>2, People Person by People Person :</strong>

<span class=”a-text-bold”>The author of the “brazenly hilarious, tell-it-like-it-is first novel” (</span><span class=”a-text-bold a-text-italic”>Oprah Daily</span><span class=”a-text-bold”>) </span><span class=”a-text-bold a-text-italic”>Queenie</span><span class=”a-text-bold”> returns with another witty and insightful novel about the power of family—even when they seem like strangers.</span>

If you could choose your family…you wouldn’t choose the Penningtons.

Dimple Pennington knows of her half siblings, but she doesn’t really <span class=”a-text-italic”>know</span> them. Five people who don’t have anything in common except for faint memories of being driven through Brixton in their dad’s gold jeep, and some pretty complex abandonment issues. Dimple has bigger things to think about.

She’s thirty, and her life isn’t really going anywhere. An aspiring lifestyle influencer with a terrible and wayward boyfriend, Dimple’s life has shrunk to the size of a phone screen. And despite a small but loyal following, she’s never felt more alone in her life. That is, until a dramatic event brings her half siblings Nikisha, Danny, Lizzie, and Prynce crashing back into her life. And when they’re all forced to reconnect with Cyril Pennington, the absent father they never really knew, things get even more complicated.

From an author with “a flair for storytelling that appears effortlessly authentic” (<span class=”a-text-italic”>Time</span>), <span class=”a-text-italic”>People Person</span> is a vibrant and charming celebration of discovering family as an adult.
