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.
