An Ordinary WonderBuki Papillon
Back home, weighed down by the expectations of their wealthy and powerful family, the love of Oto's twin sister wavers, causing Oto to make drastic choices that will alter the family's lives for ever.
Richly imagined with art and folk tales, this moving and modern novel follows Oto through life at home and at boarding school in Nigeria, through the heartbreak of living as a boy despite their profound belief they are a girl, and through a hunger for freedom that only a new life in the United States can offer.
An Ordinary Wonder is a powerful coming-of-age story that explores complex desires as well as challenges of family, identity, gender and culture, and what it means to feel whole.
