Really loved this book.

Some of the characters were a bit bland and boring but it still kept me interested in them.

Loved Igwu. Wish there was a book just about him.

Taryn I *loved* Ugwu! I watched the movie right after I read this one and was disappointed they cut a lot of his story out, focusing almost entirely on the adult drama.


Margitte Loved this book! Glad you enjoyed it too, Frankie.
