I loved this book Yoruba is so funny. Especially when she teaches Fuka her dad and jumbo how to swim.Also when she walks around pretending that her water gun was real and she was killing them.  http://www.libraryweb.org

I have very mixed feelings about this book. The plot honestly felt like something you'd see in a book for much younger readers, but then it was combined with an element of teenage sexuality which felt both unnecessary and disrupting from the plot itself. The romance was fine, but the sexualisation was not. The characters were also not as well developed as one would like.  http://www.libraryweb.org
