Fifteen-year-old Andrew Aziza lives in Kontagora, Nigeria, where his days are spent about town with his friends, grappling with his fantasies about white girls (especially blondes) and wondering who his father is. When he’s not in church, at school or attempting to form ‘Africa’s first superheroes’, he obsesses over mathematical theorems, ideas of Black power and HXVX: the Curse of Africa.

Sure enough, Andy soon falls for the first white girl he lays eyes on. But multiple crises are looming, set to shake the foundations of everything he knows and loves...

'This is extraordinary, driven by a gloriously eccentric central character. It is utterly compelling, not shy about posing difficult questions for the reader' 2023 NERO PRIZE JUDGES
