by Nalo Hopkinson

Reviewer Rating:


Born into a family with mojo, Makeda has none, and the separation from her conjoined twin left Abby with a permanent limp. In an effort to get out from under her collective family’s thumb (and get on with her life as a ‘regular’ human), Makeda moves out and that’s when everything goes wrong. She knows that her family is keeping secrets about her true nature and place in the world, and it turns out that the secret is better and worse than Makeda thought. What’s really exciting about this book is the way Hopkinson combines Caribbean mythology and practice into modern day Canadian society. The characters are intriguing and compelling and I never saw the plot twists and ending coming. If you’re interested in urban paranormal fantasy but want to read something fresh, this is the book for you.
