It's interesting to me to see how talent is developped in one's mind ...
It took her 2 years to finish her first novel "Reading the Ceiling" ; it's a story about the choices we make in life and how they impact the course of our lives ...
The main personnage Ayodele is at the crossroad of her life as a young woman and she has to choose btw staying in Africa getting married as a second wife, or moving to Europe pursuing her academic goals while tasting the sour and sweet of her first love...
Dayo embarks us with Ayodele on the pursuit of hapiness through each choice..
