Author of Sweet 16: Bolaji Abdullahi

Genre: The Genre of Sweet Sixteen is Fiction

Number of Pages: Pages is Sweet Sixteen: 53

Publication Year: Sweet sixteen was published on February 1, 2017

Short Desciption: Aliya has to constantly remind her father that she is not a child but ‘a young adult.’ He does not always agree with her.

But now that she is turning sixteen, he is sitting up and taking notice. The expected birthday card from him is replaced by a present and no holds barred letter – a page for each year she has lived.

It chronicles the lessons he has tried to teach her and the wisdom he has attempted to pass to her. It unburdens the burning questions she has about life and sometimes shows through the cluelessness of parental units.

Aliya questions who she is and why she is; with her father as a guide on this journey of discovery. An engaging coming of age guide on life and love for the teenage girl.

Before we really get started, Have you already finished reading the novel? We believe it should take you up to 5 days to thoroughly complete this novel, so we're throwing the flow open for those who have already finished the novel. How would you summarize what you understand from the book so far?

Learning from the piece is worth time spent on it
And seeing life from a well connected family
  • Tonyvic: I view it as a coming of age story, which features Aliya, mr. Bello(Aliya father) and a couple of others.
    Aliya would have to let her father know she is now a lady at age 16.
    And not a child but her father would n't agree, until he began to realize the rapid change in thinking/thought from Aliya.

  • Temitope: The story was actually trying to send an eye opening message to us teenagers.Aliya represents all the teenagers, and her father signifies the picture of a mentor, who teaches Aliya of what being a young adult entails, not what Aliya taught it really entails.

will myschool post sweet sixteen summary questions for us??
as a form of rivisional exercise bfor d actual exams..
I see SWEET SIXTEEN as a fiction, which teaches teenagers like Aliya about life. I would say the novel contains/features a girl (Aliya) who always tell her father that she is not a child but her father insists that she is a child and this resulted in calling Aliya Young Adult. Aliya is guided with her father through the life. At first, she didn't understand, but with time she came to understand that her was a man whose life can help her through her own destiny. And as for me admire her, and I will love to have a father like Aliya's

  • Ekundayo: The novel widely known as "sweet sixteen" represent the coming age of teenagers, (a girl so called Aliya)
    Aliya quickly got exposed to what should not be minded at her age,
    Fortunately, he have a brilliant and intelligent father named Mr. Bello (journalist and a worker under PUBLIC RELATIONS AGENCY)
    Mr. Bello enlightened Aliya about :
    1)s*x relationship
    2)gender education
    3)religion intolerance
    4)and not to revenge or retaliate rather than peacemakers.
    Aliya is a fast learner, she understood everything concerning what Mr. Bello's enlightments,l.
    therefore, she understood about being an adult

What's happening? My own SWEET SIXTEEN consists of 53pages only. And you people are mentioning 157pages.
  • KING ASA: Its actually the same thing. Only difference is, the texts are more smaller and compressed with no pictures in the new one. I think for portability and comfortability, anywhere and anytime. But i still prefer the one of '157'; there are pictures for smooth reading and remembrance of points and moments. Its still fun though sha, enjoy.

So we got information that the original version of the novel contains 157 pages, where are the "JAMB Version", most likely a summarized version of the original on contains only 53 pages. Since we are working with the JAMB version, we have now updated the information accordingly. Thanks for your input everyone.

  • ImiNathy: well, the entire story serves as an eye opener to teenagers upon s*xual education and guide to becoming of age Teenagers in terms of association, career path, and life thereafter....
    in as much as it serves as an eye opener to teenagers, it is also of significant importance to Parents, Young couples and Adults in terms of responsible parenthood, maintaining good relationship with their children. it can be infuse from the story that Mr. Bello closeness with Aliyah wasn't just that of a father but they are more like friends 👭👬👫 , and Mr. Bello isn't just too formal with Aliya unlike some parents (Best way to win a daughter's heart isn't it? )
    Mr. Bello is just the kind of father in me, Studious, always taking leaves from other relevant writers page on Parental life in general.... the ending part forced out hot tears off my eye 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  • yvngallen: wow i love the story so much, especially the closeness of aliya and her father
    Mr. Bello was a very wise man and he taught his daughter the right way of life
    the story is a clear and good message for all teenagers
    we can't do something because others are doing it, what matters the most is that what you are doing is it wrong or right?

    The ending part is the most interesting part in the story.
    It really touched my soul 😣😣
