Zainab Sekyi is on a quest to find herself. . .

She's moving to New York City to pursue her lifelong dream to become an illustrator, but she doesn't just want to get a job. She's also on a mission to make enough money to go on a night out, buy a whole bottle of wine (not just a glass) and, most importantly of all, to fall in love.

But as she grows accustomed to the hustle and bustle of city life - with the help of her new roommate Mary Grace, and life-long friend, Densua - she begins to hear the voices of her ancestors in her mind. . .

Could understanding her family's past hold the key to Zainab's future?

A charming romcom about one woman learning to fall in love in one of the most magical cities on earth, Ayesha Harruna Attah's novel is perfect for fans of Uzma Jalaluddin, Kiley Reid and Angela Makholwa.

*3.5

I really liked how Zainab's ancestors were a major part of the story and how they were incorporated. I would like to know more of what happens after the story is over but I feel like it ended in a good spot.

I received an arc through netgalley.
