    This book is an opportunity lost Sesay spends far too much time focused on herself She brags about her reporting skills and she discusses her own guilt upbringing education and family far too much This story is not about her At one point she says my eyes flashed She also talks about the determined set of her chin when she confronts and defeats according to her Nigerian politicians These are not phrases one can use to describe oneselfThe chapters about the girls are written coldly and clinically with weak attempts to inject emotion that fall flat I appreciate the author's intent but her writing style is one that reports the facts It does not create a story with engaging sympathetic characters Given the topic how is that even possible? I should have been in tears for the whole book but the attempts to instill emotion were trite I wanted to get to know the girls I feel as if I've read their resumes Casual chatty phrases are used such as when the girls tuck into breakfast The author actually describes one girl as whineySesay is a journalist not a novelist and the book suffers as a result
