Waterstones Says

A collection of sharp, smart and fearless essays from the author of I Am Not Your Baby Mother, Sista Sister is packed full of the wisdom and advice that Candice wished she’d received as a young Black girl.  

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 thought-provoking, urgent and inspirational guide to life as a Black British mum, it was an important call-to-arms allowing mothers to take control and scrap the parenting rulebook to do it their own way. It was a Sunday Times top five bestseller.

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 relationships between people of different races and colourism, this will be a fascinating read that will have another profound impact on conversations about Black Lives Matter.

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