A new pair of shoes, a university degree, a husband - these are the things that a girl dreams of in a Nigerian village. And with a government scholarship right around the corner, these dreams aren't too far out of reach.

But the girl's dreams turn to nightmares when her village is attacked by the terrorist group Boko Haram. Kidnapped with other girls and women, she is forced to follow her captors' radical beliefs and watch as her best friend slowly accepts them.

Still, the girl defends her existence. As impossible as escape may seem, her life - her future - is hers to fight for.

Based on interviews with young women who were kidnapped by Boko Haram, this poignant novel by Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani tells the timely story of one girl who was taken from her home in Nigeria and her harrowing fight for survival.
