by Amma Darko

Faceless is a must read from one of Ghana's most prominent female writers, Amma Darko, a story that takes you into the intense squalor, neglect and abuse that pervades the slums of Africa's biggest cities like Accra. Darko's heartbreaking account tells of Baby T, a teenager whose own family sold her into prostitution. When she is found dead in the slum, no one notices. No one, that is, but her sister Fofo. Fofo is a bold, courageous 14-year old who seeks to avenge the death of her sister, a death she knows warrants justice.
