Conjuring the precise emotional mire that is an adolescent boy’s daily life, A-dZiko Simba Gegele’s debut novel for young adults is an unconventionally told adventure. Gegele summons the major distresses in her intrepid but harangued narrator’s existence with pitch-perfect tones of frustration. Characterised by colourful language that comes alive when read aloud, the author champions her plucky narrator’s battles, putting him up against great odds — a difficult dad, a painfully annoying sister, and the perfect girl who’s just out of reach, courted by the narrator’s chief classroom rival. Through it all, the reader roots for this young hero, taking a journey with him through school upheavals and domestic wars. His remarkable, deeply funny story is sure to resonate with the young, the old, and anyone who’s had to navigate a tough spot or two on the road to growing up.
