Product Details


“A brilliant novel about sisters, war, and freedom.”–Booklist, starred review 

“Onyebuchi has created a fascinating futuristic Nigeria and a plot filled with left hooks and upper cuts, even as he nobly illuminates one of the most pervasive conditions of the human experience.”–The New York Times Book Review 

“Set amid the horrors of war in a world ravaged by climate change and nuclear disaster, this heart-wrenching and complex page-turner, drawn from the 1960s Nigerian civil war, will leave readers stunned and awaiting the second installment.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review 

“The intense plot is narrated in alternating third-person perspectives, and the author explores themes surrounding colonization, family, and the injustices of war. The story culminates in an unexpected, heart-wrenching end. An exhilarating series opener.”–Kirkus Reviews 

“[A] compulsively readable story with high action and high drama in equal measure. Perfect for fans of Paolo Bacigalupi’s novels and the Pacific Rim films.”–SLJ

War Girls
is a brutal and spectacular feat of imagination.”–Dhonielle Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Belles series.
