Wahala
By Nikki May

Different, that’s one word I would use to describe this book. For me, it was like reading a reality show instead of watching it.

Set in London, this story mainly follows three friends, Ronke, Simi and Boo.

The three friends seem really close until Isobel, a friend from the past arrives. We start seeing holes in the tight friendship. Isobel is a crazy character, she gets close to each of the other ladies and brings out the worst in them.

Themes covered in this book include race (all three girls are mixed-race) culture, marriage, friendship and parenting.

The writing style is conversational which makes it an easy read.

I love the cover, especially the UK version pictured above.

The ending part of this book reminded me of My Sister The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite and I’ll better stop there before I drop more spoilers.
