This is an inspiring story told by a masterful writer. It’s just after the Civil War, set in Texas. 
Simon is travelling around with a group of musicians, trying to stay afloat and out of trouble. He finds a girl that captures his heart and finds a way to keep her in his sights despite a lot of obstacles. 

If you enjoyed News of the World, this book will make you love Jiles’ style even more.

I like the concept of this book – pick an ordinary day in the past and find out what happened to ordinary people living ordinary lives on that day. And indeed, the author found momentous tragedies, quiet triumphs, lives begun, ended, and irrevocably changed. In practice much of the book was necessarily devoted to background and follow up, sometimes covering decades before and after this One Day.
Still, it’s hard to see how any of the events covered would have made sense without this information, and the final chapter tied it all up well, bringing back into focus the people readers had met and the events in which they were involved.

Nnamdi lives in Nigeria, where he believes his father was killed by a local crime lord. A year later, the murder is still not avenged, and Nnamdi is visited by his father’s spirit, who gives him an Ikenga--a small statue that gives Nnamdi the power to turn into a powerful, Hulk-like superhero. Will Nnamdi be able to control the rage he feels and use his power for good? Or will his desperate need for revenge consume him?
Perfect for anyone who loves a good superhero story.
