I learned of this book from Facebook- and I loved reading it. It's short- full of emotion and you can't help but wonder what happens to the narrator at the end, and I was happy when Leila did accept Maxwell-they were good together, it left me wondering, if the narrator was Nancy or Leila, given the scent of her perfume.
Quite a twist, a beautiful book!
I am going to state for the record that Dora Okeyo is my favorite Kenyan Writer-she has a way with words, especially in reading Made For You-and no, this story is not confusing-it's pretty straightforward if you've ever fallen in and out of love!
Dora's my favorite writer so far-and reading "December" is proof. There's tension between leila and Maxwell and in reading the final story I thought she'd turn down his proposal- but I was in for something else and that's what I loved about this short take of their love.

I love how strong Maria is and her voice and pain is one and the same-and you cannot help but think how she could stand her husband's adultery-even when the number of women have superseded her fingers.
Love is like diarrhea it needs neither an invitation nor privacy.
I did like some aspects of this book. It's written very well, and you follow through the story and all but my beef with it is that I write in short code idk about u, bt that jst got me thinking why not?
You get what I mean, right?
Dora writes well, her dialogues are gr8!
Keep writing Dora, and hope this book gets lots of downloads. It's a good one!
This book has quite the character! You cannot help but either hate or love Sandy, and though she is intelligent, she just doesn't grow on you, and that's what is good about it.
It's quite different from what she's written before because the whole story is about Sandy and there's never been a more selfish character.
I like this.
If you live in Kenya, you can relate to Sandy's friend, Julia.
This book is different but in a good way!
