I had heard about this book a couple of months, and it kinda sparked my interest. I went to a federal school, and I so happen  know a good number of “Feddie Girls”, if you will. So a couple of months later this shows up in our email, and I was like wow. The book actually is real. I’ll be going to get a copy just to read and laugh since it has a comic twist to it. I suggest you do the same.

  1. I've read the book. It's very hilarious amazing. The author did a god job of portraying Naija and the Federal schools. While reading it I could have sworn I was one of the characters. And the author's writing style is mature and exciting; it just sucks you in and grabs your attention from page one.

    If you attended a Federal School in Nigeria, please don't miss reading this book. It's awesome!

    The novel is a must read for everyone, both male and female. Don't miss it!
