2011 book by NnediOkorafor. 12-year-old Sunny lives in Nigeria, but she was born in New York City. She looks West African, but is so sensitive to the sun that she can’t play soccer during the day, due to her albinism. She doesn’t seem to fit in anywhere. Her classmate Orlu and his friend Chichi reveal that they have magical abilities--and so does she. They are all "Leopard People", or people with magical abilities. Sunny is a “free agent", or someone who has magical powers without a relative having them. And she has a lot of catching up to do.

Received overwhelmingly good reviews for bucking the traditional MedievalEuropeanFantasy norm and the MonochromeCasting of most Western fantasy books. A sequel called ''Breaking Kola'' is expected to be published in 2014.
