I enjoyed this book, but it's not the YA novel it's marketed as. This would have been my favourite book ever if I had read it aged 8-10. Fortunately I still do like children's books and this is a good one. It's positive and uplifting without ever becoming grating or overly sweet. It's also quite funny outside the more serious scenes.

I enjoyed this book very much. Set in an alternate(or is it?) universe, a child who is a dada, has to overcome adversity and save her best friend's life. The world building was wonderfully done and the story is very finely paced. Something for both adults and young adults here.

An amazing tale of a young girl discovering her unusual power and using it to save her best friend. The story really comes into its own thanks to the fantastic world in which it occurs, where people live in massive trees and where most objects are grown from seeds: CPU seeds anyone? This is world building at its best: alien but such that you would want to live there.

This is the first time I'm seeing Harry Potter-like fantasy with black characters, better yet, set in a place like Africa. Her sense of setting is so imaginative and unique as are her characters. I was really intrigued and anxiously await her next novel- I hope she doesn’t take too long!

Zahrah is born Dada, which in Ooni society singles her out as being different from others. This difference manifests itself in her as a Windseeker; the ability to fly.

This was a very enjoyable and imaginative tale by Nnedi Okorafor.
