  1. Imagine this being taken away from all that you cherish, all that you love and being thrust into a landscape that is frightening, bizarre and so incredibly different from all that you know This is exactly what happens to nine year old Lola Ogunwole Born in London to Nigerian parents, her world is torn apart when her mother abandons Lola and her brother Adebola They find themselves in a foster home until their father comes to claim them Lola thinks that her troubles are over but they have just be [...]


  2. I found this book hard to put down, and it left me with a lot to think about it s written as a diary, by a girl who moves from London to Nigeria with her brother The writing style changes nicely from her as a young child, to as a teenager she writes well throughout Her father s choices in how to bring her up remain a mystery throughout the book, and her life goes from something that I can identify with, to a world away from things I know I would love to read a sequel to this, to see how her life [...]


  3. Imagine This is a sad story, a great one at that but what stands out is the realism behind the situation the protagonist finds herself in The problem of irresponsible parents is a clingy tick on Africa s fur, and Sade Adeniran captures this injustice in its full image Lola s idiosyncratic perspective of the world adds to the charm of this book, and as a reader we get to witness the transformation of a little girl blossoming into adulthood in the most beautiful of ways In my perspective a great b [...]


  4. Lovely book.I went through the highs and lows with Omolola, pausing to laugh at her funny takes on life I also found myself feeling sad with her, I didn t cry, but I felt like and probably looked it too Her voice didn t change throughout the 8 years of her journal keeping, which makes me wonder if the author got it right with younger Lola I wondered if it wasn t a little beyond a 9 year old s ability, but 9 isn t so small afterall.Oh, and I don t know how it was in the 80s, but I don t think stu [...]


  5. I hope to meet Sade one day And when I do, I will give her a big hug, and will hold tighlty unto her She is a great writer.Well done, Sade


  6. Interesting Too long in parts, a lot of characters not well developed and some editing errors but in general an okay read


  7. Another fantastic debut by a Nigerian author I d never ever heard of This novel is told through journal entries by the progtaginst Lola, a young Nigerian girl living in London until her world is turned upside down and she is dragged back to live in Nigeria Once there, she and her close brother are separated and her father disowns her for his second family.Lola details all her troubles and struggles whilst being sexually abused by family members, physically abused and starved before going to the [...]


  8. I loved this book On a hot day at college I was browsing the library when I came across this book I felt I could relate to Lola as am a Nigerian myself for her she went back to Nigerian and in my suitation I came to London when I was 12 and I also kept a joural diary as i struggle in a new and different environment What i love about the book was Lola and her many relative and some she cant even remember their name She went through many strugles and self discovey as she tried to find where she be [...]


  9. I thought that this book was stunningough be prepared for Toad s Wild Ride as you follow the main character through a series of horrible life hurtles At times it gets a little dull as you begin to anticipate the hardships and become desensitized to them Still it s an eye opening fictional accout and worth the time.


  10. Interesting read wherein the story tells of the experiences and emotions of a young girl born in England and returns to Nigeria She finds herself in a foreign environment where the rules of the game are very different Inspite of it all It does speak to the fact that we may never know the depth of our inner strength until truly tested Very well done.


  11. I was initially apprehensive because it is written as journal entries throughout, but I soon fell in love with the style and the story Having left England as a teenager to a life in Nigeria that I had little experience off, I could relate to some of Sade s story I felt every emotion A very insightful book, it s a shame it s not widely publicised.


  12. Loved this book for its awesome simplicity An interesting debut novel and an amazing coming of age story I would definitely imagine and hear Lola s voice long after the I ve flipped close the pages of this book.


  13. Prize winning novel about a young Nigerian girl who is left with her father s relatives in a village, but survives all the mistreatment by family and supposed friends Written in the form of diary entries Some parts are quite harrowing.





  14. Diary that starts with a nine year old girl who has been abandoned by mother and father It was well written but very sad and could not be used in the classroom due to sexual content.
