Everything Good Will Come
Sefi Atta

An international prize-winning novel by Nigerian-born Sefi Atta, Everything Good Will Come is a powerful and eloquent story of a young woman's coming of age. It is 1971, and Nigeria is under military rule and eleven-year-old Enitan Taiwo is tired of waiting for school to start. Will her mother, who has become deeply religious since the death of Enitan's brother, allow her to be friends with the new girl next door, Sheri Bakare? The two girls' paths traverse this novel, as one manipulates the traditional system and the other attempts to defy it.

A literary masterpiece... Everything Good Will Come put me into a spell from the first page to the very last... It portrays the complicated society and history of Nigeria through... brilliant prose.

Sefi Atta’s debut novel is a beautiful stirring story on the concept of womanhood, family and love of country...I was lost in Lagos, Nigeria, a world so different from my own.
