Feddie girl is a fictional novel about Carlotta Ikedi who is sent to a bording school in Nigeria because she performs poorly in the U.S. High school environment. On the webpage of the publisher it is stated:

School rules and regulations, rising bell, lights-out, manual labor, inspections, dining time, prefects, punishments, mean bunkmates, and visiting days–it’s all here. But author Nona David takes Carlotta’s story a step further when her adventures lead to unfortunate incidents that threaten to drive her American family into the clutches of infidelity and organized crime.
Boarding school doesn’t get any better than this…
