Summary

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 best seller. 

Sista Sister 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 sex and friendships between people of different races, this is a fascinating listen 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.

Things I wish I knew before I reached the age that I am, but extremely grateful that this book has come to be.

Liberating

Such a liberating book. It was reassuring to hear that the comments that are made about my skin tone are offensive and I'm not just being sensative. Would definitely listen again.

Brilliant as expected!!

Brilliant performance from Candice, I wondered if she could top her previous book (I am not your baby mother), and she definately outdid herself in Sista Sister! Can't wait to recommend it to female friends and family! 100% recommend

informative and relatable

I loved this book. it was so true and relatable. so many scenarios that could have been myself. Candice is honest and unafraid to tackle and talk about the most taboo subjects.
Excellent read.

I rate this a 10 out of 5

I loved every part of this book. This is definitely something I would have benefitted from as a youth and will reccomend this to my youth to read/listen to this also. There is so much I resonated with. Especially the hair chapter, I had to keep reminding and listening with other people! Such an inspiration for the community.
I love the passion, work, and honesty that has gone into this book. Candice has such an infectiously positive aura and I don't even know her.
I cannot wait for more. Also, a great Audible voice. Can't wait for the next book! ;)
