Spotlight—Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor {+Giveaway!}

I’m so pleased to be taking part in the blog tour for AKATA WITCH as we prepare for the release of AKATA WARRIOR by Nnedi Okorafor. See below for information about the book and a chance to win a copy of AKATA WITCH and an ARC of AKATA WARRIOR!

World Fantasy Award-winning author Nnedi Okorafor weaves together a story of magic, mystery, and finding one’s place in the world–for fans of Ursula Le Guin and Diana Wynne Jones.
Twelve-year-old Sunny lives in Nigeria, but she was born American. Her features are African, but she’s albino. She’s a terrific athlete, but can’t go out into the sun to play soccer. There seems to be no place where she fits. And then she discovers something amazing-she is a “free agent,” with latent magical power. Soon she’s part of a quartet of magic students, studying the visible and invisible, learning to change reality. But will it be enough to help them when they are asked to catch a career criminal who knows magic too?
