by Rimma Onoseta
This young adult novel explores the connection between two Nigerian sisters as they go down different paths. Sisters Cheta and Zam deal with complicated family circumstances and a strained relationship with a difficult mother. Neither path is easy or without its challenges and drama. This is a riveting read that is hard to put down.
"Debut author Onoseta's novel offers exceptionally rich character development…. Modern social and political issues are masterfully woven into the narrative.... An unforgettable, character-driven exploration of sisterhood, survival, and self-advocacy perfect for fans of Elizabeth Acevedo or Ibi Zoboi." ~ School Library Journal starred review
