90 Days From Woke The Story of an Overnight Instagram Sensation
by Nonye Akuba
Genre: New Adult Contemporary, Chick Lit
Meet Leilani—people pleaser, self-improvement tool addict and professional third wheel. Her life as of late is an unfulfilling repeat of missteps, flops and faux pauxs. She’s stranded in the doldrums and hasn’t been able to escape…Until she learns her cousin, Chantal, who’s never had her life together, is planning a wedding for the fall and had the unmitigated gall to overlook her as maid of honor. She hasn’t consulted Leilani about this life-changing decision, let alone introduced her to the new beau.
Yet, there’s a connection between Leilani and this mystery man—and she’s determined to exploit it. A plane ticket, new look, and the support of two zany friends combine to turn Leilani Rose into Miami’s newest Instagram starlet. Well intentioned, although haplessly misguided, Leilani bungles her way into a new lifestyle of celebrity. When Chantal’s fiancé and a hot, up and coming star take an interest in her, and she becomes the focus of a scandal, she starts to wonder is the new notoriety worth it or does she want her old life back?
Nonye Akuba is a New-Adult Fiction novelist. New Adult Fiction is an emerging genre that explores protagonists eighteen to thirty years of age. Nonye offers stories that loosely pull from her own experience, the experiences of her closest friends, and a pretty overactive imagination. 90 Days from Woke is a fictional dramedy that refreshingly interwines lessons of forgiveness, self-acceptance, and the quest for true love into an entertaining joyride.
When Nonye isn’t writing, she is managing her Identity 31 clothing brand–an athleisure brand that merges the fundaments reflected in Proverbs 31:10-31 with a fresh, uniquely urban fashion style. It is a lifestyle brand that embodies a wholehearted love for God, love for family, commitment to purpose and an incontestable grind.
