Right from the start this book has you captured. The storyline is gut wrenching but also hopeful, sad yet also sweet, shows oppression but also love and kindness. The writing is magical. You feel every word and go on this journey with Kambili and her family. You see her grow, you witness her change, you feel her emotions and you think her thoughts. This book is unputdownable and stays with you even after it's done. I'm so glad I read this one.
