First book review in 2022😂😂
2022 has been that year. I’m sorry for not dropping reviews of the beautiful 33 books I have read this year. I hope to put out a summary of my best 10 or 15 by the end of the year.
I’m here with an exciting review of A. H. Mohammed’s latest work, the author of Last days at forcados high. I put up a review of his former work on the blog and to date, it has received so much traction.
I was a teen rockstar just as The last days at forcados high is a warm, quick read with lessons for everyone.
In this book, we meet Lanre. Lanre doesn’t like school, he never seems to get his assignments or lessons right. Lives in a dismal condition with his aunt as his mum relocated from the country.
We are taken through Lanres’ life from a state of despair to finding and building talent and love for music through the help of his uncle.
Lanre runs away from home and meets up with a wannabe talent finder, Malik, who helps Lanre become famous. He and KD, a female singer, set out as an amazing duo singing group. They get the gigs, sign contracts and are living the life.
Has Lanre overcome his fears and won at life as a rockstar?
We get to find out in this book for young readers. Lanre is naive, has not had proper home training and had to learn to be an adult at an early age.
He goes through a series of learning curves and some take-home lessons are:
1. Never depend solely on people especially if they aren’t family. Build proper and dependable relationships.
2. Be smart, never be gullible and if you are learn to overcome it.
3. No matter what height you attain, education of any sort is very crucial.
4. Good parenting will always be an essential part of childhood and development.
5. Hone your talents and passions or develop skills, it may save you in future.
6. Finally, we should educate kids on finance early.
This was a good read and I’m thankful to the author and publishers (Bard and Ink Publishing) for sending a review copy across. You can get copies of this book from Roving Heights on Instagram.
I just completed reading the book Into the darkest corner by Elizabeth Haynes and I think I’m gradually delving back into my thriller fanaticism phase. I’m currently reading Welcome to Lagos by Chibundu Onuzo and here’s hoping it’s a good one.
Till next time Readers!
