Somaiya Daud shared a note and highlight from
Mirage by Somaiya Daud
“Tesleet,” I repeated. “The bird of the Banu Ziyad is the tesleet. And on the back is your name and this line: I was marked before my husband. I shall be marked after.”
'Tesleet' is actually an Amazigh word (I'm fairly certain it's Teschelhit specfiically) for 'bride'. I named the birds 'tesleet' because they all have a font of feathers springing from their foreheads that arc over their necks, much like a bridal veil.

I loved this book because it gives off that girl next door feel. The camaraderie between Sewa and her three friends, her mother and brother is real. It gives also a feel of Nigeria and its food, culture. Sewa's relationship with Jide is al" Read more of this review »
