The Girl in the Rain

A Girl in the Rain is a collection of poems written by 14-year old secondary school student, Chiamaka Jessica Onumaegbu, whose writings reflect inner depth and love for family, people, and environment.This collection of poems shows consummate word-power and passionate feelings. The poems flow like songs that burst out from rivulets of emotions. The language is compelling and the themes well-cultivated to intertwine with one another like beautifully woven pieces of intelligence.

As regular with poets, Onumaegbu’s book explores her daily experiences while growing up, the psychology of the girl-child, challenges, questions, expectations and responses to prevalent social ills.

“I think that the poems are inspiring,” says Amara Chimeka, CEO of Purple Shelves Ltd. “They show a heart full of positivity and optimism, which in a sense, escalates into hope. Such works from the younger generation show that there is hope for our reading culture, for our literary traditions and for us as a people. Everyone should read this collection. Adults should read it to be encouraged; youths should read it to be inspired.
