God, I loved every aspect of this book. The storytelling is wonderful, and it only makes me want to read more by Nnedi Okorafor; it was so beautiful in every way, and I literally couldn't put it down unless forced to do something besides read.

There are so many topics discussed in the book: friendship, loyalty, finding one's self, etc. It weaves together a tale so fantastical but also so very real; it's beyond gorgeous, and I don't want to write more for fear of genuinely spoiling it.
