Book Description

What Sunny Saw in the Flames transports the reader to a magical place where nothing is quite as it seems. Born in New York, but living in Aba, Nigeria, thirteen-year-old Sunny is understandably a little lost. She is albino. Her eyes are so sensitive to the sun that she has to wait until evening to play football.  Apart from being good at the beautiful game, she has a special gift: she can see into the future.  At school, she soon becomes part of a special quartet with unique powers. Together, Sunny, Orlu, Chichi and Sasha explore this exciting realm of strange creatures and dark secrets. The good news is that in this world, your worst defect is actually your greatest asset. But there’s a catch. Someone is kidnapping children and maiming or killing them. The group is asked to help track down the criminal. Will Sunny be able to overcome the killer with powers stronger than her own, or will the future she saw in the flames come to reality?

Nnedi Okorafor’s novel is an absorbing coming-of-age fantasy novel, ideal for young teenagers.

I loooove the audiobook of Remote Control so much. It’s read by @andoh_adjoa (from Bridgeton). I listened to it again as I read along.
