CROOKED LIFE chronicles the adventure of a young school boy called Ebuka who led a dishonest life. He was a child born in a God-fearing family. As the only child, he was the pride of his mother who doted on him for several reasons. She ensured he never misbehaved or minglde with bad kids. She also ensured she provided all he needed just as the case might be. Proudly enough, she ensured that Ebuka did not return home with any item she did not buy for him. His father, who was not usually at home, was a good disciplinarian.
Despite all her mother's desire to make him a better kid, Ebuka never returned home without stealing one thing or the other from his peers.
Unfortunately, he ran into a very huge trouble when he stole a food item from a 'juju' woman. It was when he reached home that he discovered that he had entered into trouble of the unknown. In this regard, nobody had the power to deliver him except the owner of the food item he stole. But, how could he go back to the market and publicly announce that he stole something? What would happen to him? What would be the fate of his parents? Find out more from this lesson-laddened story, full of moral lessons, which is a must-read for every home.
...a story of ambivalence, virtue pitted against vice; honesty and sincerity against hypocrisy.
