Published: Random House - January 26th, 2021

A beautifully wrenching story: when my hands were not frantically turning pages they were likely to be covering my mouth or my heart. It asks, where has mankind’s humanity gone? And yet it answers that it lives right beside the darkness, in pockets as small as a package of peanuts and as vast as a mother’s fortitude. Debut author Keisha Bush wrote this novel after years spent in Dakar, Senegal, but she grew up right here in Boston.

The way these characters and this family unfold around you is both exhilarating and tender. There's a feeling of both incredible momentum and a peaceful stillness that should be at odds with each other in one book, yet they dovetail together to celebrate the mingled beauty and terror of life and mortality, in particular one life: that of the unique and wonderful and tragic Vivek Oji.

Ikenga reads like a blend between a folk tale and a Marvel origin story (no wonder why, since brilliant author Okorafor is also creator of more than a few Wakandan comics). When Nnamdi discovers a way to tap into incredible powers, justice is at the forefront of his mind – but he learns that the line between hero and bad guy is thinner than he could’ve imagined.
