In between Things, 2012: A self-published anthology with work from Teju’s last two of years of high school and first two years of college. In Between Things is compromised of non-fiction pieces, poetry, and essays that document Teju’s growth from the first part of her young adult life.
Teju published this raw and honest prose as a personal expression of her continuing growth and a testament to the beginning of her adult life. Although more work could be done to make the book more editorially sound, sometimes done is better than perfect. Find it here.
