About the Book

Witty, cynical, informative. Get ready to be transported to a vibrant and culturally rich Lagos, Nigeria, in the 1970s-90s, through the eyes of a young girl growing up in a middle-class family from Ibusa, the Enuani region of Delta State. "Corals of Youth" is a collective memoir that masterfully strings together the author's experiences and those of her peers, creating a stunning literal mosaic of school life, escapades, relationships, and cultural influences. From the legacy missionary schools in Yaba, Lagos mainland now a tech hub, this book captures the essence of a bygone era, exploring the intersection of cultures, traditions, and identities. With each "coral bead" of memory, the author takes us on a journey of self-discovery, laughter, and nostalgia, painting a vivid picture of a city that has become a melting pot of cultures. This book is a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered what it's like to grow up in a city where tradition meets modernity, and where the past and present blend seamlessly together. With its universal themes of courage and resilience, Friendship, love and family, and relatable characters, "Corals of Youth" is a story that will resonate with readers from all walks of life."
