About the Novel 

A broken soul, 

an alcoholic, 

a certifiable genius, 

                                                     a Christian man 



and a secret that will destroy the bonds of their friendship.



When self-proclaimed atheist Fadesola, gets into medical school she believes that it’s a fresh start of sorts for her. Until she discovers  her class mate is charming and handsome Tayo Smith, a man she encountered in a violent moment years ago. This revelation shatters Fadesola’s already fragile emotional state but hope comes where she least expects it.

A seemingly innocent friendship with Tayo’s friend, Ladi, slowly develops into a smoldering relationship with both afraid to acknowledge their mutual feelings. Things get even more complicated when Nikky, Fadesola’s classmate and friend, ignores her desperate warnings and decides that Tayo is the man she is meant to be with.


However, within the complexities of this friendship these flawed individuals will experience God’s redemptive grace in a setting each believed his love would never find them. Still, the first book of a four part series is a coming of age story about navigating through medical school in the first year, complete with hilarious hook ups and breaks ups, legendary parties and incessant studying, and experiencing the triumph of success and disappointment of failure.

                                         DESCRIPTION

STILL is a debut novel of Eniola and book 1 of its series. This novel is written with an unusually creative and dramatic style. Its intriguing ,hilarious and keeps you longing for more. As events unfold in the novel, one almost thinks he can foretell what's next but then Eniola's does her magic with her twist style of writing.

                                       MY REVIEW

The story of Sola, Nikky,Tayo and Ladi is so enjoyable as it takes me back to my university days . But then,It held me captivated and transported me to a new world as  I read about Sola's pain and loss of hope in life.

 Tayo's story reminds me of the  demons that hunt us daily. I almost wished I was Nikky but that's a whole lot baggage ,she is carrying! Ladi definitely reminds of myself in many more ways than one or maybe not ,since we are all broken in one way or the other.

A tale of  young and bright Nigerians living in America ,these guys not only battle the rigours of med school,they also battle darkness in their own unique ways. Some thought they had found hope, Some waiting for light at the end of the tunnel and for some hope is a myth that doesn't does one no good.

I recommend this book for everyone, you don't want to miss out on this interesting and inspirational read.Don't envy me because I got a free copy.lol
Go grab a copy guys!!!

                              About the Author 

Eniola Prentice was born in Lagos Nigeria where she began to pen her stories as early as nine years old, inspired by an eclectic group of writers. Her budding writing career was put in the back burner as she pursued her dream of becoming a medical doctor, completing her undergraduate degree in Chicago, Illinois and her medical degree in Washington, DC. However in the third year of medical school inspired by the holy spirit or the voices in her head (she would prefer to blame God for this one) and the unique and inspiring stories of friends that became her family in medical school she began to write her debut novel and series, Still. She hopes that her writing compels challenges, inspires people and draws people to the Christian God’s redeeming love. You can connect with her by visiting eniolaprenticewrites.blogspot.com.
