Summary:

Twelve-year-old Sunny lives in Nigeria, but she was born American. Her features are African, but she has albinism. She's a terrific athlete, but can't go out into the sun to play soccer. There seems to be no place where she fits in. And then she discovers something amazing-she is a 'free agent' with latent mystical power. Soon she's part of a quartet of students, studying the visible and invisible, learning to change reality. But will it be enough to help them when they are asked to catch a career criminal well-versed in powerful juju?

    this review turned really long but it's spoiler free. I mainly picked this book in my search of black authors. I am glad I found this gold gem. it reminds me of home, even tho I am Caribbean. It gave me a sense of nostalgia as I left haiti when I was 9 turning 10. almost the same age sunny left the states. it felt good to read about power outages, and having to use candles. I could see myself in my school uniform walking from school in the hot sun. it also unfortunately brought back memories of being whipped at school too. the story it self was great too. I came for 1 protagonists but I received 4 great black protagonists where the color of their skin wasn't the main issue. for sunny, they mostly focused on her albinism in the intro and her introduction to her powers afterwards its all dropped which is nice. at school with the bullies surprisingly sunny has both a strong bark and bite. for Sasha they focused on him being "American" for a lot longer than I thought they would. But with his personality being so personaly strong i can see the parallel being drawn. sadly the author didn't focus on Orlu too much, I hope they focus on chichi and orlu in the next book. he was the straight men of the group. and he had his own small development after chichi pushed her luck a bit too far at the tournament. chichi is the epitome of confidence, and I am happy they showed that she still had much learn as a leopard person. the world the author created was big and we've only explored a small section. i hope in the next one we can explore more of the characters and the worlds.

    A gorgeous story and much needed change of pace in the 'Coming of Age YA Fantasy' genre. Magical fantasy is often very Euro-centric, witches and wizards with wands etc. so Akata Witch offers a beautiful alternative. I'm absolutely hungering for more, and already started Akata Warrior! I was ecstatic to see Nnedi Okorafor coming back as the narrator, her voice brings a lot to the book
