Quote:
When Niru’s traditional Nigerian parents accidentally find out that Niru is gay, the consequences are brutal and devastating. In their wake lies a shattered Niru. Confused and resentful, his relationship with Meredith sputters. They aren’t sure how to resume their friendship. How can they share their troubles now when they are so radically different? How can Niru stand to listen to Meredith’s college woes as he grapples with his sexuality and his family’s severe judgment? Iweala describes his characters’ suffering so viscerally and truthfully that I was left stunned.



This book will break your heart.

I borrow all my books from my local library using the Overdrive app. Do you purchase the books you read ?   FADF1E6C-A22E-4753-8B93-190C6B887509.gif

I do indeed purchase them, some as a download to my Kindle - but mostly in Paper....I love real books.  I think my companion and I have over 10,000 books.  I usually share them with people if the book is not meaningful to me...but if I like it - I tend to add it to a shelf to read again.  I love reading a good book several times. I have a very good friend that like to read any Biographies I get...sometimes he returns and sometimes he adds to his collection.  Books are the best thing in the universe

I read most of my books on my Kindle simply because it is so darn easy to browse, borrow, and return   books through my local library. I wouldn’t able to support my habit if I had to buy them.  And I agree that books are the best thing in the universe. Well, not better than my critters, or chocolate, or out little forum here, but still pretty darn great.   77F795AB-D492-4D51-9858-8E3AEA157842.gif

I totally agree not much better than a book...I fell in love with them when I was very wee...they were my escape from a horrible childhood and remain my passion......
