Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

By turns luminous and horrific, this debut ensnares the reader from the first page and lingers in the memory long after its tragic end. First-person narrator Kambili Achike is a 15-year-old Nigerian girl growing up in sheltered privilege in a country ravaged by political strife and personal struggle.

Reluctant at first, but haunted by a loss of his own, Raker reluctantly agrees. Big mistake.
