Akata Witch is unlike any book I have read before. Set in Nigeria, the book focuses on Sunny, a twelve year old girl with albinism who discovers she has magical powers. She joins a group of young people who also have powers who are then asked to catch a magical criminal. The way Okorafor describes the magic Sunny and her friends use was so interesting and unique. The subplot relating to Sunny's relationship with her family was also interesting. This is a beautiful book and I can't wait for the sequel.

i am a great fan of @nnedi's work. i think this is a very accomplished piece of writing, suitable for adults even if aimed at juveniles. great to see african scifi going mainstream.

My only critique is that it ended. If you felt Harry Potter was perhaps too childish or flawed in parts then like me you'll find this book is every bit as good but with none of the failings. I've read all of Nnedi's books and this is IMO the best of them but she's gets better with every book so who knows what's next.
