Growing Yams in London by Sophia Acheampong 'Listen, if you want to see Nelson, you have to lie,' Tanisha insisted.
'Seriously?'
'Yeah, unless you actually want to wait till you're eighteen.'

I knew she was right. My parents would never let me meet him.
 
Makeeda loves her life and her friends in London. Her parents wish she'd spend less time texting her mates and more time finding out about her Ghanaian roots. So when she meet the very fit DJ Nelson, Makeeda starts to break her family's rules. Life gets even more complicated when she falls out with her best friend, Bharti.
 
Can Makeeda find a way to be true to herself as well as respect her culture?
