Comment: I just finished this fabulous YA fantasy novel this morning. It is set in Nigeria and includes Nigerian mythology about gods and magic. It is very exciting and unique. The Friday 56 quote happens to be a turning point in the story.

    1. It's been on my list since the beginning of the year. I placed a hold on it at the library and it finally came in with the audio version and the e-version arriving just days from each other so I half listened half read it.

  2. It sounds incredibly unique. I see it might be part of a series and there might be a movie already. Wow!

  4. Wow, this definitely has me intrigued and I have to say this is a plus for memes like this, you get to have a sneak peak, without the entire plot being given away if you are interested.
