"In this remarkable debut novel, a family of Nigerian women attempt to carefully tiptoe around an unspeakable tragedy. Through masterfully crafted scenes full of sumptuous imagery, readers are moved, just as these characters are, by forces beyond their control, beyond their lifetimes."

"Louisa Onomé's YA novel is for readers who can relate to the overwhelming feelings of change all around us. For Nelo, everything is changing. Her neighbourhood, her relationships and the way boys are looking at her. But Nelo's unbeatable spirit is what will get her through turbulent times and will have readers cheering her on to the very last page."
