Memoirs, Popular culture

The new book by the Sunday Times bestselling sensation who burst on our scenes in 2020 and urged us to recognise racial bias in all its ugliness.

Candice Brathwaite's much-anticipated second book about all the things she wishes she'd been told when she was young and needed guidance.

_______________

I Am Not Your Baby Mother was a landmark publication in 2020. A Sunday Times top five bestseller, it was an important call-to-arms allowing mothers to take control and scrap the parenting rulebook to do it their own way.

Sista Sister goes further. It is a compilation of essays about all the things Candice wishes someone had talked to her about when she was a young black girl growing up in London. From family and money to black hair and fashion, as well as colourism and relationships between people of different races, this is a fascinating read that will launch some much-needed conversations, between Sistas and Sisters alike.

Written in Candice's trademark straight-talking, warm and funny style, it will delight her fans, old and new.
