One Chance Dance

Efua Traoré

Jomi’s mum left him to find their destiny in Lagos, the city of dreams. Now, Jomi and his friendly bush baby follow her to the city, where their only starting place is a TV dance competition his mum used to love.

Lagos is no place for a boy and a bush baby – but things start to look up when Jomi meets a crew of street kids. Together, they come up with a plan: a one-chance dance.

If they can get on that TV show, then maybe Jomi’s mum will see him and they can find their destiny together…
