A Must Read: Powder Necklace by Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond

"Brew-Hammond's colorful descriptions of Ghana and emotionally honest style capture the reader's attention from the first page.” J.L. King, New York Times bestselling author

“As a kid, I lived in Ghana for three years where I attended boarding school and encountered a small group of kids whose parents had also sent them to Ghana from Europe and the States. I wanted to write a book about that unique hybrid experience of being from two places at the same time, reconciling a first world superiority complex with respect for your immigrant parents, crisscrossing the globe to visit family "back home" and on other dots of the map, and figuring out how to answer when people ask you where you’re from - all while meeting the challenge of growing up.” Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond
