This is a really sweet little story about an eleven-year-old who wins a place at an elite Nigerian boarding school. Jummy is sad that her less fortunate best friend, Caro, won‘t be attending with her and is surprised when she DOES show up at the school … but as a maid.

The author based this novel on her own experiences at a similar boarding school in 1990s Nigeria.
