About the Author

RIMMA ONOSETA is a Nigerian writer whose work explores identity, familial bonds, and the colonial corruption of African spirituality. She holds a degree in Finance from Northeastern University and an MBA from Suffolk University. Onoseta grew up reading late into the night, under her covers, with a flashlight and snacks. She writes stories she wanted to read when she was younger, stories about young Nigerians girls who are chaotic and fierce, and who question what they're taught. When she's not writing, Onoseta enjoys traveling and watching documentaries.

Reviews

"Intense, immersive, absorbing. From the moment I met sisters Zam and Cheta, I was completely invested in their fates. I read compulsively as they shared their struggles with each other, their mother, and their society. A story of mothers and daughters, sisters and enemies, women and girls striving, against all odds, to break generational trauma and abuse and find their own path in life."
--Yamile Saied Méndez, Pura Belpré Award-winning author of Furia

"A raw and riveting look at the complexity of sisterhood and the bonds that keep us together."
--Louisa Onome, author of Like Home
