What I Loved/Thought:
Queenie is such a well developed character, and while I went into reading this book, thinking I was getting a silly Bridget Jones parody, this book brought out so much more!
This deep moving, heart wrenching novel is about a woman dealing with past trauma and recent breakup, by handling things through sexual encounters with men as a way to numb the pain.
There are important topics like racism, abuse, and mental illness that make this book a must read for today!

Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Americanah in this disarmingly honest, boldly political, and truly inclusive novel that will speak to anyone who has gone looking for love and found something very different in its place.
