As I spent all of my childhood in Ghana and some of my eductaion in a boarding school in UK I was intrugued to read this book. I found I could really relate to the emotions of the girls especially those whose families were far away. Yaba has done a wonderful job showing adults the world through a child's mind. The characters feel real and you can't help empathising with them all. The story shows what obsession and poor communication can do to people's lives and the final twist leaves you wanting more.
