Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away Book Club Day

Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away By Christie Watson

The teenage years are tough for many of us. We felt that no on understood who we are. Still, we all managed to survive.

For Blessing, the main character of Christie Watson’s Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away, growing up as a teen in Nigeria is an entirely different experience from most of us. Her life was filled with violence and poverty, yet she managed to find moments of happiness. She found herself.

Though From Left to Write members did not grow up in Nigeria, they found common themes with Blessing and her family.

What were your teenage years like? How does your teenage dreams compare to today?
