Publisher Description

Nnedi Okorafor's acclaimed first novel for middle grade readers introduces a boy who can access super powers with the help of the magical Ikenga.

Nnamdi's father was a good chief of police, perhaps the best Kalaria had ever had. He was determined to root out the criminals that had invaded the town. But then he was murdered, and most people believed the Chief of Chiefs, most powerful of the criminals, was responsible. Nnamdi has vowed to avenge his father, but he wonders what a twelve-year-old boy can do. Until a mysterious nighttime meeting, the gift of a magical object that enables super powers, and a charge to use those powers for good changes his life forever. How can he fulfill his mission? How will he learn to control his newfound powers?

Award-winning Nnedi Okorafor, acclaimed for her Akata novels, introduces a new and engaging hero in her first novel for middle grade readers set against a richly textured background of contemporary Nigeria.

“This was a really fun read and I'm so excited by it. A great story with a great father figure who inspires and leads. And it is middle-age book! The mythology behind the book is incredibly intriguing. The characters are so interesting! So many of them too. I like the characters and my little also enjoyed the book and she's a great judge of good stories. **Hello book friends! I'm currently transitioning over to StoryGraph. I will be cross-posting throughout January before I stop using Goodreads. If you are interested in checking it out, I can be found here: http://app.thestorygraph.com/profile/robert_gonzalez .”
