One of the first books by a Nigerian author that I really connected with is Chimamanda’s purple hibiscus. This book felt so Nigerian and so real to me in a way that no other book did and the characters felt like people I could actually know and meet on any street.
This book is visceral, gripping and sad. But there’s also a cautiously hopeful undertone in the end that implies anything can be overcome.
We give this book ⭐⭐⭐⭐
