The story of Eyo, a ten-year-old girl trafficked from Nigeria to England and brutally exploited, is told with sensitivity and vivid realism. Sadly, Eyo's story, though fiction, is grounded in reality, and I hope this book will raise awareness of the issues facing abused and exploited children.
Thank you, Abidemi, for writing this amazing book.
There were some grammatical problems I attributed to the author not being a native speaker of English. Since most characters were Nigerian, the non-standard use of "wouldn't" instead of "won't" simply added to the flavor. However, it was a bit disconcerting for native Brits to make the same mistake. Perhaps I lack the necessary subtlety, but the ending wasn't explicit enough for me. Was Eyo walking toward the house or away from it? I know which way I wanted her to go, but the ending set up to make me expect something else.
Highly recommended but expect to be shaken.
