    1. Reading Eyo is like opening your eyes to the brutality of Human beings. It is like the wind-it is everywhere and anywhere and it comes and goes even when you're already down on the ground.Eyo is an illiterate girl, who is taken to London, by his Father's friend-Femi, with the promise of making money to send home and also getting a chance to read. She doesn't want to leave because she knows that her Father who sexually abuses her will turn on her younger sister Sade- but she goes anyway. When she [...]


    2. When I first came across this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I got the kindle version from (UK) and started reading, and honestly, I couldn’t put it down. The twists and constant climax kept me glued.

Desperate for a better life, her parents set her on an unwinding a [...]

    4. This was heartbreaking, and extremely realistic. With a main character you can't help loving, and a plot that highlights the real-life horrors of human trafficking, this book is unforgettable. I'll be looking for more books from this author.


    5. This book is "crazy" and it revealed too many issues that people avoided all the time. 'Eyo' is one of the books that I studied for my course and transformed my certain perspectives of human trafficking. Heart-wrenching! 3 stars.
