Entangled in America

374 pages4 hours


Go on a real life adventure with a young African woman after she decides to gamble on America in this thrilling new personal memoir from the author of UNEXPECTED AMERICA – Wanjiru Warama.

Since she spent two years as the only girl in class in middle school, Wanjiru has always believed that through persistence, tenacity, and hard work, she could make it anywhere. Was America the one nut she couldn’t crack? Would she have to return to Kenya penniless—not only to her embarrassment but to her whole family’s—eyes downcast?

With no family for thousands of miles, except her minor daughter, Wanjiru has to come to terms with what she’s made off. She operates under wraps, even when she goes to beg for food; she doesn’t want her daughter to learn what shaky lives they lead. Her secret, she keeps breathing and showing up. But is this all worth it?
