Narrator Nneka Okoye brings her British-Nigerian sensibilities to the mic in this exciting new middle-grade series about Onyeka, a teen who learns that her hair gives her a psychokinetic superpower, which is called Ike. Okoye nails Onyeka's mood swings as the girl and her mother leave London for Nigeria to search for her missing father. Onyeka also learns about others like her while forging new friendships at a special boarding school, as well as escaping an attack by Rogues, finding a curative serum, and being betrayed by someone she trusts. The sound of talking drums opening each chapter effectively mirrors their use in the story as Onyeka describes the Millennial Market. Fans of Wakanda and magical schools will find much to enjoy at the Academy of the Sun. S.D.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2022]
