This book is pretty good. It's not the best and I can see kind of were they compared it Harry Potter, but I don't think it really can be compared to Harry Potter.

Here's the summary:
In the book "The Shadow Speaker" by Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu, Ejii, a young girl, is a shadow speaker. A shadow speaker is a person who can get information about people from the shadows who surround her. Many people in that time think shadow speakers were bad-omens, so Ejii was treated horribly by many, and was usually warded off. Despite the harsh treatment Ejii sets off with Jaa, a well known hero, to save her town and possibly the whole world from other worlds who seek to destroy it. Throughout her journey Ejii learns that violence is not a way to solve problems, and confronts Jaa in the meeting that was held to save the world or not. All in all, Ejii finds how to use her powers in the face of good and not evil.
