This one was just not one for me.
Rating is more like 2.75 so I rounded up.

It’s a unique and interesting story, sure. I guess I just had a hard time staying interested in this one. ( )

I very much enjoyed this one. On to the sequel! This books begs to be done on audio.... ( )

It is a good read, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was reading African Harry Potter. Too many similitudes. ( )

Really liked it.
Interesting magic, main character is nice. I'm not so fond of some of her companions, who are loud and overconfident. I'm also not so fond of the adults. The teachers are arrogant and callous. Sure, the heroes are stupid kids, but they are stupid kids that the world depends on. They could treat them with a little more respect, especially Sunny, who is not wilful or proud. ( )

I really wound up enjoying this read. I loved the setting of this book so much. I also really enjoyed the world building info that was given at the start of the book through various books. I really liked the four lead characters. I found the magic system was not as clear in the middle and felt confused at times. But i really liked the element of the murder mystery as well. It was a fast pace read. I am hopefully book 2 will make the magic system even clearer! I am excited to read it!

"Akata Witch" is a much-needed addition to the many titles featuring Caucasian protagonists — one that will appeal to readers who are interested in foreign cultures, tradition and beliefs, or those who live between cultures themselves.

To Sandra Marume, the spunky Igbo girl with the sharp tongue and mysterious ways, who just happened to be albino.

It's been awhile, but I hope I captured you well.

And to my mother, who was terrified of masquerades as a kid and still is.  This book dances with them.  Enjoy.

Her dumb brothers never cooked. She didn't think they even knew how! A human being who needs food to live but cannot prepare that food to eat? Pathetic.
So there you have it. All you need to know to get started. As I have repeated incessantly throughout this book, there is no direction you can turn that does not face you toward certain death.
The only way you can earn chittim [money] is by learning. The more you learn, the more chittim you earn. Knowledge is the center of all things.
People are too focused on money. It's supposed to be a tool, not the prize to be won.
