This is a beautiful coming-age story. Most stories of growing-up, the main character changes dramatically as the plot continues. This book is more subtle than that.The main characters change is only distinguishable once the reader gets to know her. The plot centers around Kambili and her family as they struggle through their abusive religious father's tyranny and the changing government situation. Get the metaphor yet? Beautifully described, Nigeria is accessible and dynamic. Can't wait to read more from Ngozi Adichie!
