Praise for "Feddie Girl" by readers like you

This book is splendid!!! I highly recommend it to everyone!!! The words flow so nicely. The story is suspenseful: you're curious about... what comes next and you just can't stop reading till the end. Hilarious!!! LOL!!!

The author certainly did a marvelous job and I'm amazed at how in-depth her research was. I could see myself as one of the characters in the book... LOL!!!
Kudos to Ms. David--the novel is a terrific read!!! Will definitely recommend to my friends.
Looking forward to a sequel...

I just read the excerpt from the novel, and my I found myself back in Fed Onitsha. all i can say is that Nona has a kind of writing style that is highly dramatic and poetic. She definitely has a way with words that seems to paint the picture as u read. i suspect this novel would fall into the category of novels that you want to know what's on the next page and u keep going on and on until u find urself on the last page. Well done Nona, the excerpt i read is really suspense filled and hilarious at the same time. One can easily fix up those characters looking back at school days hahahahahaha.

This book is just like back in school. Using our own private experiences we can attach names/faces to all the characters in the book. Lmao! We all know the "Senior Zika's" and "Senior Anita's" and all the wicked prefects like "Senior Chidi."
And the sikini's and Senior Rema's know themselves. Awesome!

this book takes me down memory lane of my days in fggc onitsha.the writer aptly described life in federal schools atleast during my own days in school.i had nostalgic feelns reading it and i dont regret all the experiences i had in school.good job by Nona David.

The author really did a great job. The book is awesome, the characters & events are very relatable. Every one who attended a feddy school in Nigeria should read it. It's really, really a must-read!!!!!

I couldn't stop laughing.... lol! THUMBS UP, NONA DAVID!

hilarious, we all had spectacular adventures, i did not know u culd write a book on that??!! ha ha ha lol!!

The novel is awesome, I really enjoyed it. I'm now waiting for Feddie Girl 2. Hope it comes out soon.

Keep up the good work.

This book rocks! For those of you who haven't read the American novel "Feddie Girl" by Nona David...

One can not afford to miss reading dis novel

Absolutely loving Feddie girl.

Just got Feddie girl n loving it. I live here in cincinnati and I am myself a feddie girl (Federal Government Girls college Sagamu).

Thanks for writing this book. Would definitely spread the word.

As a prospective novelist, I believe that I know what a grand novel can be. Feddie Girl, by Nona David is a well plotted novel with real stories précised from a background of Nigeria. Today, our stories are now wholly written and constructed and Nona David has showed it again in her novel- Feddie Girl.

Although I didn’t attend a Federal school in Nigeria, but I now understands what it is to be called a ‘feddie girl.’ For those of you who attended Federal Government colleges in Nigeria, this novel should be a must read!
I've read the book and it's simply amazing!! A must read for all those who attended boarding school in Nigeria.

Critics say the novel is brilliant and reviewers and all those who have read it absolutely love it.

The author dedicated the book to all Feddy alumni. It's so awesome!

Trust me, as ex-feddy students, you will absolutely love and relate to the events in this book, you'll think you're right there with the characters, living and breathing with them. Lol!

The novel is written for adults and reads like a thriller/international adventure with humor and romance thrown in. The sub-plots alone will blow you away! Lol!

A big thank you to Nona David the author of FEDDIE GIRL for the wonderful thought of writing a novel that will help all ex-feddie students remember those good old days in boarding school.

We the fans of Feddie Girl appreciate your efforts.

Seriously feddie girl has got to be the best nigerian literature I have read .. I luv it.....

Hmnn this is really exciting and great! I can't wait to read this book.

I love your blogs and the excerpts of Feddie Girl. They remind me so much of my own experiences. I think it is a brillaint idea to write about Feddy school. Thanks, and please keep it up! PRO UNITATE!

I'm just loving this!

So interestin! I really enjoyed myself.

.......You're just too much.

A great novel!!! Teenage kids need to learn from the on start that the world doesn't revolve exclusively around them. Nigerian boarding school has a way of clipping wings and putting way-ward kids back in line. LOL!!!

As a veteran of a Federal school in Nigeria, I can very well relate to the characters in this book. Highly recommended!!!
