    One thought on “Aluta”

    1. What can I say about this book It is not suspenseful, in that the opening of the book begins with Charlette s capture The rest of the book is the story behind the military capturing her and why There has been a fourth coup d eta, and Ghana has a new leader, and Charlette is at University.So, if you want to read about a young woman and how she fairs in this time, well, I wish there were other fictional books told about Ghana, but this is the first one I have read And you do learn about how life i [...]

    2. Excellent book to introduce anyone to life in Ghana in the early 1980 s and the idea of regime government change.

    3. Charlotte is living her best life She is settling into university life and getting used to all its perks She has men lining up at her door, friends with whom she can talk the night away and, best of all, a father who is no longer able to watch every single thing she does But what happens when political situations that are completely out of her hand disrupt her life Charlotte has to choose between being active in the movement for justice or remaining the quiet girl her father would want her to be [...]

    5. Aluta by Adwoa Badoe was a very interesting and different type of teen novel It is set in 1981 Ghana, with the main character Charlotte being a university student She is moving to the university from her house and is getting used to the big city life She has never experienced this before She meets many characters here, from her upper year and much experienced roommate, Mary, who dresses glamorously and is engaged to a rich man Plus, she meets her friends in the dorm, including Mary s outspoken [...]

    6. Having lived in Ghana through the revolution, I was excited to receive an ARC of Aluta, a young adult novel set in the political turmoil The story opens with Charlotte, a girl entering university for the first time, brimming with the usual freshman excitement and fears She has barely settled into college life when a military coup threatens her future and rages against the wealth of middle class parents As the revolution tears through the country, university students revolt At a time when college [...]

    7. I was excited to read this book, but mostly it was just ok I enjoyed the first 2 3 well enough, but the last third read like a Go Ask Alice, but for politics Not that awful things don t happen during revolutions, but it felt too much like a set up good, innocent girl discovers sexuality and gets loud about her views in politics, enjoys the attention she gets for being intelligent and well spoken, but then everyone close to her leaves her, she gets raped, accepts that her protests against the rev [...]

    8. A very good book I wish it would end a bit differently I love me some good kelewele Once again, magnificent job on a great book I love the University experience and I love how students took leader for Ghanaian peace all in the name of love Certainly five star worthy I recommend this book to older high school students and post secondary students it s never to early or late to make a change Splendid job Mrs Badoe.

    9. best part of this book was the description of the politics and culture in Ghana the story was ok, but the background information provided was made it stand out.

    10. I learned a lot about Ghana and I liked Charlotte s spirit, but the different plot developments felt disconnected from one another.

    11. This is a fascinating introduction to Ghana in the early 80s and the power of students even during times of great upheaval Charlotte and her friends in Africa House all have different experiences at university and through that we can see many perspectives on Ghana and the latest military coup.
