First of all let me just say that I had high hopes for this book. I read the synopsis of the book and I was very pumped to find out the story of this half caste girl called Zilayefa but popularly referred to as yellow yellow. Unfortunately, this book betrayed me.
The story started interesting☺☺, I was so into it. The story is basically about how she(Yellow) left her village after been bored out of her mind to Portharcourt for greener pasture. In Portharcourt , she lived in a rich home, she had rich friends, so life was sweet for her. When the story was becoming interesting, the book ended(no kidding!! 😬😬😬). The interesting part was when Zilayefa started sleeping with an old man and became pregnant (At this juncture, I was waiting for an anticlimax in the book but it never came ), at the end of the book without anyone knowing, she terminated the pregnancy.
Although the story touched on how people criticised and judged the half caste children (this was very common in Portharcourt then), I believe there was more to be said in this book.
Reaction:😬😬😬😬😬 I looked everywhere thinking this book cannot just end like this. What story did they now share. She was planning on entering university, did she pass the exams? There were so many questions to answer yet the author decided to just end it there. I believe there was more to her story and the author didn’t complete it. (I’m just hoping this is the one half of a series if not I’ll be so sad)
If you’ve read the book, any reactions?
