Blogger Candice Brathwaite is known for her beautifully constructed and refreshingly straight-talking Instagram captions, so we can't wait to read her urgent part-memoir, part-manifesto about black motherhood
Written in her brilliantly witty manner, this book is every black British woman's motherhood manual
Humorous but unflinching, every mother, everywhere, should read this book
This book is about so much more than paid partnerships and a square-by-square existence. It is an energetic decimation of the narrow, middle-class white lens through which we culturally speak about motherhood; a humorous and sensitive navigation of the nuances within race (Candice, as a black British woman and her husband, as a Nigerian man); and a searing commentary, through the motif of a Bugaboo pushchair, on how class and race intersect. I gobbled it in one weekend and encourage everyone - mother, or otherwise - to do the same.
She's the straight-talking social-media star who hates the word 'influencer', refuses to 'dress small' and is on a mission to portray a vision of motherhood inclusive of race and class
One of 2020's must-reads for all mums, new or experienced

To call Candice Brathwaite a mummy-blogger is to underplay the ground-breaking role she has played in challenging the white-washed, breton-striped representations of motherhood we see in the media and on Instagram.
