Nonso, Remi, Aisha and Solape are best friends at a boarding school in Nigeria. When a new, abusive principal heads the school, three of the four girls join a somewhat violent protest with disastrous results. Told through a series of short stories, narrated for the most part by three of the four friends, Jollof Rice and Other Revolutions, describes the lives of these girls in the past, present and future.
It took me a while to get the hang of this novel, especially to be able to differentiate each of the girls. Also, there are a lot of foreign words and phrases thrown in which might be annoying to some readers.
