Description
The lives of a sixteen-year-old Nigerian orphan and a well-off British woman collide in this page-turning #1 New York Times bestseller and book club favorite from Chris Cleave. We don't want to tell you too much about this book. It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this: It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific. The story starts there, but the book doesn't. And it's what happens afterward that is most important. Once you have read it, you'll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds.

display_description Since Cleave's Incendiary, which envisioned a London Tunnel bombing, was published on the day the actual bombing occurred, one wonders what secrets lie coiled within this portrait of an illegal Nigerian immigrant and the English housewife she once met on an African beach.
