...the mention of the malaria incident distracted me—and so did one confusing reference by Sunny to the power company from “back in Chicago.” Overall, though, I found Akata Witch absorbing and entertaining, and I eagerly await the October release of its sequel, Akata Warrior.

Synopsis

Read Nnedi Okorafor's blogs and other content on the Penguin Community.

Twelve-year-old Sunny lives in Nigeria, but she was born American. Her features are African, but she's albino. She's a terrific athlete, but can't go out into the sun to play soccer. There seems to be no place where she fits. And then she discovers something amazing-she is a "free agent," with latent magical power. Soon she's part of a quartet of magic students, studying the visible and invisible, learning to change reality. But will it be enough to help them when they are asked to catch a career criminal who knows magic too?
