ueenie by Candice Carty-Williams

Ional 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 ueenie seeks comfort in all the wrong placesincluding several hazardous men who do a good job of occupying brain space and a bad job of affirming self worthAs ueenie careens from one uestionable decision. I empathized a lot with the protagonist and her struggles along with the portrayal of mental health including the cultural stigma of seeking therapy how childhood affects the way we treat relationships how we internalize racism and learn to love ourselves as a WOC etc The audiobook narrator also did a great job at bringing the story to life I struggle to emotionally connect with this book as much as I should mainly because the progression of the narrative felt disjointed The first 23 of the book is repetitive in her making poor decisions with terrible white men then the last 13 of the book becomes of a grander statement of being a black girl and reveals the root cause of why ueenie makes so many flawed decisions I wish the two had been better interwoven together for a nuanced portrayal rather than a grand revelation towards the end As a result this felt forced rather than proper representation especially when a lot of the writing seemed to generalize the struggles of black women due to the main character speaking for all black women and making blanket statements VS presenting this as an individual case that s symptomatic of a systemic issue I think what would ve helped is if the author had peppered hints to ueenie s past and childhood throughout the book in a natural way rather than dumping everything towards the end and framing it as a grand political statement Overall I have no problem with the protagonist s self destructive tendencies and repetitive mistakes at all I truly empathize with her and have had a similar mindset it was so the disjointed execution that prevented me from being fully impacted by what the author intended for this story

To another she finds herself wondering “What are you doing Why are you doing it Who do you want to be” all of the uestions today’s woman must face in a world trying to answer them for herWith “fresh and honest” Jojo Moyes prose ueenie is a remarkably relatable exploration of what it means to be a modern woman searching for meaning in today’s world. A tiresome novel that made me cranky Everything about ueenie screams middle school angst ueenie and her crew think and act like 12 year olds trapped in 25 year old bodies Take away some of the sex replace their jobs with 7th grade classes and you have the tedious dramas of adolescence I liked the clever use of texts That s about it

    He put a hand on my thigh and moved it higher digging his nails into my skin That'll be a pair of tights gone This book is a bit deceiving ueenie is such a funny and lovable character with what I think of as a very British sense of humour The book opens with multiple scenes that made me laugh and the author uickly builds up a warm and hilarious dynamic between ueenie and her girlfriends the Corgis and between ueenie and her Jamai
