Sista Sister by Candice Brathwaite

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.

Peer & Press Reviews

This book is like the older sibling you wish you’d had growing up.  Looking at family, sex, money and Blackness, bestselling author Brathwaite deftly navigates even the trickiest of topics in this compilation of essays, holding up a lens to joy, heartbreak and exactly what it really means to be a young woman.


A witty, honest and transformative collection of essays.

The Strategist

Direct, accessible and in parts, very funny.
