I read Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor, and it was a very interesting and fun fantasy perspective on voodoo and non-western witchcraft! I love Okorafor's writing, and its non-western flavor is always delightful and intriguing. This story had some American characters that served as a lens of sorts, and I almost wish it wasn't that way because being thrust into well-established worlds where you as the reader are initiated into it by reading is more fun to me.

Anyway, it's worth taking a look!
