About the Book
I Do Not Come To You By Chance, by Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani, is the story of young Kingsley Ibo- a Nigerian man who has just completed his education and is looking for work so that he can begin supporting his family members who are struggling through hard times. With no job opportunities available, Kingsley gets caught up in the lucrative world of Internet crime. This book is part coming of age story, part ethical dilemma, funny and very interesting. You get a unique look at life in Nigeria and Internet crime (from the other side of the computer).
