* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: [[spoiler:Sunny manages to singlehandedly banish Ekwensu when she escapes. Not completely, but still, Ekwensu is a masquerade capable of ending the world as we know it, dangerous enough that the scholars believe the only way to beat her is by luck, but Sunny manages to trick her into returning to the spirit world.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HostileWeather: In the build-up to the climax, it rains heavily and nonstop for a week to purify the world for [[spoiler:Black Hat's final ritual]]. Sugar Cream notes that no ordinary rain could leak through the library, but this does.


Added DiffLines:

* LeeroyJenkins: Sasha is as impulsive as they come, experimenting with dangerous jujus just because he can and lashing out at anyone who tells him no. He was banished from America in the hopes that they could teach him restraint. [[spoiler:Notably he's the only one not to do anything particularly impressive in the climax, as he runs forward and tries to duel Black Hat head-on who easily defeats him.]]

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 2015.

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.
