War Girls is a really unique book. It is inspired by a civil war that took place in Nigeria in the 60s and 70s. This book is set in Nigeria but 200 years in the future. The earth has been ravaged by climate change and nuclear disasters and the privileged have fled to space colonies. A civil war rages in Nigeria. The story focuses on two young "sisters" Onyii and Ify whose lives have been devastated by the war. They are separated during a battle and over the years must find their way back to each other. The author is really clever in imaging what technology will be present in 200 years. The science of bionics and AI has advanced; space travel exists and wars are fought with flying mechs. The technology is quite amazing. Unfortunately, human nature has not evolved at the same pace as the technology. War is still cruel and devastating; horrific human rights violations occur. This book is thought provoking and specifically focuses on the effects of war on children. War Girls is fast paced and highly readable and should be considered a book for all people, not just YA readers.
