SummaryAdd a Summary
Queenie is on a break from her current relationship with her prince charming. As their time apart increases she is unpacking unsavory memories, actions, and behaviors from both sides of the fence. She felt as if she had to keep quiet about the racist comments his family made, and bottle it up until she lashed out at a man who only wanted to share her burden. He defended his family, and did not communicate his needs to her. As she struggles to put together the pieces, he has moved on.
While waiting for prince charming Queenie peruses any man who gives her attention; who fetishize her black body, and make racist comments towards her. As she navigates her relationships, she dredges up the past; instead of healing, she blames her toxic behavior as its byproduct.
When she is on the verge of losing her friends and job, she must push to go to therapy, and heal (despite her family's objections). She eventually discovers that she is a Queen who doesn't need her prince charming, and to speak up when she is being discriminated against.
