Perfectly Imperfect

Yayra Amenyo's life is no longer perfect. These are the reasons why:

  • She killed her father.
  • Her mother acts like everything is normal when it isn't.
  • Her boyfriend is on 'a break' with her.
  • She looks like a freak.
  • She's moved to a town far away from anyone she knows.
  • She has to repeat Form Two in SHS.

Could things get any worse? Will she ever get her life to be as perfect as it once was?
