Allow Me to Introduce Myself: A Novel

We rated this book:


Onyx Nwabinelli’s latest book Allow Me to Introduce Myself is as timely as it is brilliant–if you use social media or have ever seen a momfluencer account, this is a must-read.

Anuri grew up online through no choice of her own. Her first steps, her toddler years, and the awkward moments of her adolescence, were all captured, posted, and monetized for the benefit of her stepmother/momfluencer, Ophelia. Her father, Nkem, did little to interfere because he was still grieving the death of Anuri’s mother, and he didn’t understand the damage Ophelia’s choices did. At 14, Anuri rebelled against Ophelia and removed herself from Ophelia’s reach, but the content from her childhood still existed online. Even into her twenties, people recognized her and sought her out despite her desire to remain anonymous.

When Anuri sees the same destructive pattern appearing for her stepsister Noelle, she is determined to provide Noelle with the protection no one sought for her. With the support of her two closest friends, her lawyer, and a new love interest, Anuri vows to never give up until she knows Noelle is safe. Allow Me to Introduce Myself is a brilliant commentary on the harm of forcing children into a spotlight they didn’t consent to and on the constant and abiding love we can find in our friends.
