Summary Olivia Evezi's childhood is a happy one; her days spent listening to highlife records and poring over colourful postcards from Germany. When she leaves her hometown of Warri behind to live out her Enid Blyton fantasies in boarding school in Lagos, instead of adventure and lacrosse, she is met with punishments, endless chores and hazing rituals. Olivia's restlessness takes her to Germany, her mother's homeland, where she is thrown into a hidden world of workers and migrants; a world of constant vigilance, where a piece of paper can hold the key to survival. Olivia finds she's too white for Nigeria and too black for Germany -- and so must learn to define herself and her place in the world beyond the labels that have been given to her.
