This was a really beautiful story. Williams crafted the character of Queenie, her family and friends so well and managed to somehow find a balance between comedy and seriousness within Queenie's story, as she must traverse many changes, racism in every day life, generational differences in family, trials of friendship and dating, and her own mental health issues.
