Adaeze (a novella)
About The Book
“A few months after, on a hot, dry afternoon, I get a beep call, quickly followed by a text that reads: “I’m sorry.”
This stands as the single darkest day of our friendship. It’s the day she decides to take her life…”
Adaeze by Tochukwu Precious Eze mirrors the mind of a young, traumatized Nigerian lady. It follows her on a quest as she tries to find an essential part of herself.
Freedom gives and takes from us. Freedom is a blessing and a curse. Adaeze ends up becoming a victim of her own curiosity.
As issues begin to compound, how does she handle them? Do they keep her down or does she find a way to get back up?
This book raises a lot of concerns that we can’t shy away from at this point. It spotlights the loophole in our mental health system and the many ways it hurts our society.
