Author: Nnedi Okorafor

Why you should get it: I can honestly say this is book is one of the most tragic pieces of literature I have read in some time.  It stays with.  Leaves an emotional residue.  And it taught me something terrible.  I never knew what weaponized rape was or what it looked like until I read this book.  This isn’t for the kids, but it’s certainly worth taking the journey to read this.
