endured have left her feeling like she has cement in her soul Smart, irreverent, and outspoken, she reluctantly left Nigeria on a college scholarship Her aunty Uju, the pampered mistress of a general

provocative, and instantly popular blog in which she explores what she calls Racial Disorder Syndrome Meanwhile, her abandoned true love, Obinze, is suffering his own cold miseries as an unwanted
