‘Fans of I Am Not Your Baby Mother, brace for another corker from Candice Brathwaite’ – Pandora Sykes

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.
