I absolutely loved the story as I had a similar experience as a foster kid in the 60s & 70s and I could really relate to the author. However, this story (and mine) is set in the UK so why is there an American narrator who mispronounced place names like 'South Wark' and gave the word 'innit' a question mark every time she used it. I had to keep reminding
myself that the story was not set in the US. A narrator familiar with the slang and vernacular
of the U.K./Nigeria would have been better. The author is a great story teller but the narration was distracting.

An incredibly written book. Describing with breathtaking wit the loss, identity crisis, racial landscape in the UK, self esteem and self hated issues in Trans Racial Adoption and Fostering. A recommended read for WAP /anyone considering TRA in the UK today. Will resonate with POCs brought up in predominantly white environments. Absolutely captivating, brutally honest and a gift for anyone struggling to articulate what growing up ‘other’ in white environments in Britain in the 70-90s was like. This voice is important.
