    I feel bad giving this book only two stars, because I think that Corban Addison can write really well and there were some very good sections The problems came with the main character, Zoe She was annoying beyond belief, professed to love Africa so much, yet was constantly sneering and rolling her eyes at things that weren t Western, and of course, she had to be beautiful, rich and a senator s daughter I didn t understand why her African boyfriend would bother with her or vice versa They didn I feel bad giving this book only two stars, because I think that Corban Addison can write really well and there were some very good sections The problems came with the main character, Zoe She was annoying beyond belief, professed to love Africa so much, yet was constantly sneering and rolling her eyes at things that weren t Western, and of course, she had to be beautiful, rich and a senator s daughter I didn t understand why her African boyfriend would bother with her or...
