I am so pleased to introduce my new friend and fellow writer, Remi Roy. I received a copy of Remi's debut novella, Ms. Unlikely and I throughly enjoyed it. Remi Roy has penned a sweet, realistic coming-of-age story. In doing so, she created likable and relatable characters, who make us care and root for them despite their imperfections. The characters jump of the page, with their witty dialogue and well-rounded personalities. I absolutely loved Reki and identified with many of the struggles she faced. Though I would have liked a little more resolution at the end, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
I look forward to many more great books from this author - she is definitely one to watch. Find out more about her and read more about her new book.
Remi Roy was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. Her love of books and reading blossomed into a desire to tell stories. In 2013, shemoved to the United States to study for a Masters in Emerging Media dn Communication.

AS a result, she loves to write about the unique experiences of young women as it pertains to finding and living their life's purpose. Ms. Unlikely is her first book. Remi lives in the United States with her husband.
