The House of Shells by Efua Traoré - Paperback
Kuki is sure that the old family curse of the Abiku is a myth – she will not die young. Then, she meets a new friend, Enilo, while exploring the ruins of a forbidden house. When Kuki finds Enilo playing with children that are unmistakably Arike – wicked spirits – she realises her curse might be true after all, and her greatest fear might just become a reality . . . unless her new best friend can break the curse that binds them.
