The Death of Vivek Oji

The Death of Vivek OjiThe Death of Vivek Oji by Akwaeke Emezi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“They were keeping me alive in the sweetest way they knew how, you see.”

Exceptional. This book took my breath away. Exquisitely written and overwhelming heartfelt. This is the story of a young persons search for sexuality, identity and acceptance. It’s about complicated relationships between friends and family. I was especially touched by struggle of Vivek’s mother and her quest to find out what really happened to her son and her final act to give his life meaning. Five stars.
