Short story review: Treasure by Oyinkan Braithwaite (Hush Collection)

Summary:

Treasure is an aspiring Instagram influencer in Nigeria with thousands of followers. Treasure takes photos with many expensive pieces such as Gucci and Fendi.

One follower in particular becomes a little obsessed with Treasure. When Treasure accidentally leaves her location on a post, she erases it quickly. But not before the wrong person sees it.

My Thoughts:

I listened to most of this one on Audible and read just the beginning on Kindle.

This is a very tragic lesson in portraying yourself on social media and the risks one takes when posting to a dedicated audience.

I loved the detailed description of Nigeria by casting the landscape and accents of the characters throughout the short story.
