Sibi's Adventures in Alahtene

by Mary S. Fosi

Meet Sibi, a vivacious, smart, and audacious girl who leaves the comforts of her coastal town and parents to live with Ndih, her granny in the village of Alahtene. Sibi's integration into village life is swift and adventurous, aided by the ever-soothing supervision of her equally gallant grandmother and teenage uncle, Ajuenekoh. Recounted from the first person, we follow Sibi's adventures in school, church, neighbourhoods, the rivers, hills and forests of Alahtene, its buzzy market and most significantly, around Ndih's fireside. Set in the early 1960s, Sibi's Adventures in Alahtene bubbles with dozens of breathtaking stories about the intrigues of adult life and childhood in a rural community rapidly integrating into a newly formed African country.
