Destined for the King is a true story turned to fiction of how a young innocent teenage girl was forced out of school by the events of a civil war that erupted in her country, Nigeria. In her time, formal education for the female child was a mirage. Her father, an astute politician, took exception to this norm, but the civil war threatened his perspective. Uju averted every attempt to be married off into polygamy during the civil war. She went through dangerous, mind-blowing experiences to avert this dilemma. Most of her counterparts were not so fortunate. She went back to school after the devastation. Through so many challenges, she became a university graduate, and a divinely orchestrated chain of events saw her through to the throne—a queen of an ancient kingdom. The book mirrors the struggles of a young girl who was determined to succeed at all cost. The colorful presentation of the village, school, and urban life makes it a delightful read for all ages and times.
