From Goodreads: A tale of adventure, magic, and the power of the human spirit. Paama’s husband is a fool and a glutton. Bad enough that he followed her to her parents’ home in the village of Makendha—now he’s disgraced himself by murdering livestock and stealing corn. When Paama leaves him for good, she attracts the attention of the undying ones—the djombi— who present her with a gift: the Chaos Stick, which allows her to manipulate the subtle forces of the world. Unfortunately, a wrathful djombi with indigo skin believes this power should be his and his alone.

A contemporary fairy tale that is inspired in part by a Senegalese folk tale.

 


This book has been on my Overdrive wishlist for quite some time, but I keep overlooking it for some reason. I should just go and check it out this week as it looks super interesting, has won multiple awards, and would help me get closer to my Read the World Challenge goal.

Actually, I think I’ll go and check it out right now…
