The lives of a sixteen-year-old Nigerian orphan and a well-off British woman collide in this page-turning #1 New York Times bestseller and book club favorite from Chris Cleave.

We donít want to tell you too much about this book. It is a truly special story and we donít want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this: It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific. The story starts there, but the book doesnít. And itís what happens afterward that is most important. Once you have read it, youíll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please donít tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds.
