Feddie Girl by Nona David review
From the back of the book:
Carlotta Ikedi (a.k.a Feddie Girl) has never liked school. Not in California. Not in Oklahoma. When her exasperated parents ships her off to boarding school- in West Africa- Carlotta faces a life, culture, and existence unlike anything she’s ever known.
School rules and regulation, rising bell, lights-out, manual labor, inspections, dinning time, perfects, punishments, mean bunkmates, and visiting days-it’s all here. But author Nona David takes Carlotta’s story a step further when her adventures lead to unfortunate incidents that threaten to drive her American family into the clutches of infidelity and organized crime/
Boarding school doesn’t get any better than this…..
For readers who’ve experienced the boarding school life, the adventures of Feddie Girl will bring those memories crashing back…For anyone else, get ready to see the world as Feddie Girl.
At first I had a hard time getting into the flow of the book, but by the 2 chapter I couldn’t put it down. The action and adventure that comes pouring out of this book will hold readers attention and keep them glued to the book. With hilarious situations, and jaw dropping plots, Feddie Girl makes for the perfect suspenseful read that will both entertain and amuse. So find a comfy reading spot and prepare to be lost in the world created by author Nona David.
