"An extraordinarily moving account of Florence's life as a black child fostered by white parents, the turbulent transition into adulthood in Nigeria, the struggle to return to England, to find the meaning of home. This is a stunning read, beautifully written with searing honesty and humor about the complexities of race and identity, about culture and belonging, about the discernible quest for self-discovery. This is a testimony of faith, resilience and determination, a wonderful achievement."—Abi Daré, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl with the Louding Voice
"In her memoir Coconut, the remarkable Florence O?la´ji´de´ shares with us a story of great encouragement. With grace, wit, insight and not a little heartbreak, through the prism of her own experiences, she adds to the conversation around modern migration; who we are in the world and how we navigate the cultures which have shaped us. Resilience, love and a loyalty to our unique sense of self, lie at the heart of her story. And it is by giving our attention to the stories of others, that our own worlds open up."—Adjoa Andoh, actress and star of Bridgerton
"I found myself completely immersed from the start! Florence writes with honesty, beauty and courage…delving deeply into some of the most important issues of our times."—Christy Lefteri, international bestselling author of The Beekeeper of Aleppo
