Purple Hibiscus was hands down my favorite read this month, despite having read a great number of good books in September. Really, the characters were just so enthralling and I found myself caught up in worry for them. I continued to root for them, through thick and thin. Their character development was beyond real. What a tragedy they all had to go through to make it out the other side. Also I did not see that ending coming! Adiche has a way with words.
