The story follows Sunny who is an American Born Nigerian. Her parents move her and her brothers to Nigeria when Sunny was about five, but she considers herself American. Her American accent and mannerisms make her an outcast amongst her classmates, as does her albino skin and her intelligence.
Sunny befriends one classmate and her neighbor, who drag her into the world of magic, of which she was born to be part of. They and another young magic user are tasked with catching a serial killer who also has magic. It's all very exciting and dangers and a very serious pressure is placed upon the children. For if they do not stop the serial killer, he will bring about the end of days.
It's a bit of a coming of age, as well as a discovery of self, family secrets.
I listened to the audiobook and kept up with the physical copy. It was well narrated and and good story. I look forward to the next book in the series.
