A Review on the Novel- Crossfire by OmoobaJesu Adetunji

1. Typical Teenagers’ Struggles:

Typical struggles that teenagers go through was evidenced in this novel. Kiitan at the beginning of the novel was caught masturbating and watching pornography. Enitan got into sexual practices,c alcoholism, and was wrongly influenced.

2. Resentment:

This was evident in the relationship that existed between the two brothers. This resentment was there from when they were teenagers, up until they grew up and went to the university. And we see how much damage that caused them.

3. Influence:

The theme of Influence was also very prominent in the novel. Good and bad Influence! Jumoke And Lanre had a bad influence on Enitan. Mary and the other classmates had a good influence on each other, as they studied for their WAEC together. Aunty Rose had a good influence on Enitan’s family, etc.

4. Salvation; The Love of God:

Oh, the overwhelming love of God!
The love of God is so deep, it chased Enitan, Kiitan And their father down, till it caught up with them, and changed their lives forever. God’s love as displayed in this novel showed that there is no one that cannot be saved. No one is too far gone. … More A Review on the Novel- Crossfire by OmoobaJesu Adetunji

Try everything on and if one doesn’t fit any longer, get rid of it. It’s miserable keeping clothes you can’t wear! … More Fashion Styles and Wardrobe | by Toluwalase Ayomide Bismark

Life’s Lessons Through My Years | by Amao Williams Praise

We are shouted at and told, “No! Get away from there! Stop that! Put that down!”. Physical punishment and the withholding of love, possibilities that scare us and make us feel insecure, often accompany these shouts and criticisms. We soon begin to believe that we are too small, too weak, incompetent, inadequate, and incapable of doing anything new or different. We express this feeling with the words, “I.can’t, I can’t, I can’t.”. The fear of failure is the primary reason for failure in teenagers life. As a result of destructive criticism in childhood, we hold ourselves back as teenagers. We sell ourselves short. … More Life’s Lessons Through My Years | by Amao Williams Praise
