My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kambili and Jaja, sister and brother in Nigeria, are in a privileged family. All is not as it seems as they have a father who is a religious fanatic and does not stop at extreme punishment for them and their mother.

Luckily they have their auntie to go to and who is very kind to them. She has her own problems with being a widow and raising three children of her own.
