Read Nothing Comes Close by Tolulope Popoola-fReado
The Story Behind This Book
The plot for Nothing Comes Close grew out of an online series titled In My Dreams It Was Simpler that Tolulope Popoola created and co-wrote with eight other writers. She created the main cast, and picked two of them as protagonists for her novel. “The online series ended on a cliff-hanger.” She said. “I wanted to get my female protagonist to a point where she was satisfied with the choices she had made for her future. With the novel, I got to make that happen.”
The story captures the ups and downs of a girl, her group of friends and her love interest as they try to navigate careers, heartbreaks, loyalty and cultural expectations in an exciting and entertaining way.
