The writing style is clear and simple, but with snippets of Nigerian dialect for flavor. The descriptions of Lagos and the characters' lifestyles are also done in a way that made it easy for someone (me!) who knows almost nothing about Nigeria to follow along and enjoy reading about the culture there. Overall, I found this an inspirational, heartfelt story about a young woman living in a culture most Americans are completely unfamiliar with, presented in a very approachable way. Readers looking for inspirational books featuring women of color, or who are interested in dipping a toe in African literature, will probably find a lot to enjoy in this book.
I adore the central theme: if you want something bad enough, the universe will find a way to make it happen. This is a great message, especially for young girls who might be feeling, as Adaugo had, that their path to happiness meanders from that which is expected of them. Highly recommend.
She's a remarkable character that was developed well and we get to see her grow up and experience a life that we've all had a part in. There have been many crossroads in my life that had I listened to my inner voice like Adougo does would have been so much better.
This book has so many positive twists that I can't help but feel for Adougo.
I look forward to reading more from Chikamso and hope there is more to Adougo's story.
