Five runaways ride the bus from Bayelsa to a better life in a megacity.
They are unlikely allies — a private, a housewife, an officer, a militant and a young girl. They share a need for escape and a dream for the future.
Soon, they will also share a burden none of them expected, but for now, the five sit quietly with their hopes, as the billboards fly past and shout: Welcome to Lagos.
I loved the bittersweet tone of this novel, so wise and beautiful - and such a relief to see so many of those characters I came to feel for receive a positive outcome.
