Must-read This is the first book by Alyssa Rae that I’ve read, and I must say that this book exceeded my expectations of it. Going into the book, I thought this was a typical coming-of-age, YA novel. But the deeper I got into the narrative, the more about the story unfolded in many beautiful ways.A Rebel Star by Alyssa Rae takes a closer look at a teenager’s life turned upside down when she realizes the impact of her father’s oil company business to a tribe in Nigeria. The narrative that follows is a wonderful epiphany and journey of a young girl in finding herself, looking for the truth about her mother’s past, and making a difficult decision when faced with a crossroads.Apart from the brilliant voice that Alyssa Rae provides protagonist Mari with, the book is also filled with local color in parts where Nigeria is featured. The author cleverly captures the essence of these places and people, and creates a riveting tale out of it. A Rebel Star is a must-read book that I recommend to everyone.” - JB Lazarte
