Lit site Read For Pleasure had some wonderful things to say about the book. Here’s a quote:
From Detroit to Nigeria, Davis takes readers on a sometimes painful, yet engaging, journey. She captures the spirit of the late eighties; a Detroit beginning to crumble under Reaganomics, student activists’ newly found awareness of South Africa’s apartheid structure, and injustices around the world. She vividly paints a picture of Fela’s Nigeria as experienced through Ella and re-told to Angie. And she does it all masterfully.
