Welcome to Lagos

Chibundu Onuzo

ISBN 9780571268955

Five runaways ride the bus from Bayelsa to a better life in a megacity.

They are unlikely allies, a private, a housewife, an officer, a militant and a young girl. They share a need for escape and a dream for the future.

Soon, they will also share a burden none of them expected, but for now, the five sit quietly with their hopes, as the billboards fly past and shout: Welcome to Lagos.
