Go on a boarding school adventure and win this fun series!

Explore 90s Nigeria in this exciting boarding school series.

This uplifting series from author Sabine Adeyinka follows the adventures of Jummy after she wins a place at River School, the prodigious girls' boarding school in Nigeria. Jummy is excited, even if her best friend Caro can’t join her, and gets stuck into the midnight feasts, sports and makes new friends. However, when Caro starts working at the school, Jummy must bring new and old friends together to help. Set in 90s Nigeria, this series combines heart-warming friendships, mystery and a classic boarding school story. Titles in the series include:

  • Jummy at the River School
  • Three Cheers for the River School
  • Time to Shine at the River School

We are delighted to be giving away all three books in the series to three lucky winners who fill out the form below by 11pm Thursday 18th July 2024. Good Luck!
