About the Author

Louisa Onomé is the Nigerian Canadian author of the critically acclaimed young adult novel Like Home. She holds a BA in professional writing from York University. When she is not writing, her hobbies include picking up languages she may never use, crying over her favorite video games, and perfecting her skin-care routine. She currently resides in the Toronto area.


"Onomé artfully weaves emotionally dense commentary on straddling multiple cultural identities and meeting immigrant familial expectations with playful dialogue in Nigerian pidgin and compelling characters, making for a full, feel-good read. Recommend this to fans of realistic fiction and children of diaspora seeking joyful representation" --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB)

"Deftly drawn, charismatic characters bring a measure of humor to the story and reverently convey aspects of Nigerian culture. Themes . . . are seamlessly interwoven in a fluid plot that is honest and satisfying." --Horn Book Magazine

"Twice As Perfect intricately weaves together the profound pressures of being the children of immigrants with the enormous love of one's culture and family. A beautiful and multifaceted novel that is sure to tug on anyone's heartstrings." --Adiba Jaigirdar, author of Hani and Ishu's Guide to Fake Dating

"A heartfelt story about growing up and discovering one's passions amongst familial and communal expectations. Twice as Perfect captures the ups and downs that come with belonging in two worlds, and readers will root for Adanna as she learns to show up as her authentic self." --Laila Sabreen, author of You Truly Assumed

"Razor-sharp, smart, and tender, Twice as Perfect celebrates family, friendship, and finding yourself." --Nafiza Azad, author of The Wild Ones

"A touching coming-of-age story, highly recommended for audiences looking for titles like Angie Thomas's The Hate U Give and Nic Stone's Dear Martin. A must-have." --School Library Journal, starred review

"A phenomenal coming-of-age story that centers on Black girlhood, the not-so-subtle violence of gentrification, and friendship. Louisa Onomé presents us with a compelling and beautifully written tale about love and loss." --Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé, New York Times and Indie bestselling author of Ace of Spades
