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. ______________Praise for I Am Not Your Baby Mother’Accessible, sometimes shocking, honest, and feels written from the heart’ – Bernardine Evaristo’I gobbled it in one weekend and encourage everyone – mother, or otherwise – to do the same’ – Pandora Sykes’Remarkable’ – Lorraine Kelly’Searing’ – Dolly Alderton’I absolutely loved I Am Not Your Baby Mother’ – Giovanna Fletcher’This book is needed for the voiceless’ – Nadiya Hussain’Brilliant’ – Sophie Ellis-Bextor’An essential exploration of the realities of black motherhood in the UK’ – Observer’Urgent part-memoir, part-manifesto about black motherhood’ – Red'[An] original and much-needed guide to navigating black motherhood’ – Cosmopolitan’The woman bringing a fresh perspective to the mumfluencer world’ – Grazia’Every mother, everywhere, should read this book’ – OK Magazine
