Books by Janet Afegbua Lawal


Jinxed! Is the story of a teenage girl Jemi, who feels totally out of place in the world based on her birth circumstances. She does not understand why her father hates her so much and why her mother had to leave so early. She feels resentful towards the world as all her efforts to win love and acceptance ends in disaster. She is involved in a freak accident which leaves her with very bad burns on her face. This further strengthens her belief that she is indeed jinxed and nothing good can come from her. Her return back to school leaves her even more depressed as she is mocked about how she looks. She quits school without telling anyone to the chagrin of their housekeeper and drifts into her own imaginary world. She is taken to the United Kingdom where her aunt lives, with the hope that she can get better. Can Jemi overcome the psychological abuse she has been suffering from childhood? Or the feeling of being inadequate and unloved?
