An Ordinary Wonder is a story of the courage needed to be yourself.
Oto leaves for boarding school with one plan: excel and escape his
cruel home. Falling in love with his roommate was certainly not on
the agenda, but fear and shame force him to hide his love and true
self. Back home, weighed down by the expectations of their wealthy
and powerful family, the love of Oto's twin sister wavers and, as
their world begins to crumble around them, Oto must make drastic
choices that will alter the family's lives for ever. Richly
imagined with art, proverbs and folk tales, this moving and modern
novel follows Oto through life at home and at boarding school in
Nigeria, through the heartbreak of living as a boy despite their
profound belief they are a girl, and through a hunger for freedom
that only a new life in the United States can offer. An Ordinary
Wonder is a powerful coming-of-age story that explores complex
desires as well as challenges of family, identity, gender and
culture, and what it means to feel whole.
