Aya : of Yop City by Marguerite Abouet ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The original cast of characters from the original book "Aya" is back in full force, with a case of questionable paternity fanning the flames of activity in the community. The new mother Adjoua has her friends to help with the baby, perhaps employing Aya a bit too frequently, while a new romance leaves Bintou with little time for her friends, let alone their responsibilities. The young women aren't the only residents of Yopougon involved in the excitement, however; Aya's father is caught in the midst of his own trysts and his employer's declining Solibra beer sales, and Adjoua's brother finds his share of the city's nightlife

Aya de Yopougon by Marguerite Abouet ( Book )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in French and Spanish and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Aya, 19 ans, vit à Yopougon, un quartier populaire d'Abidjan, la capitale ivoirienne. Au contraire de ses copines, qui ne pensent qu'à faire la fête et à flirter avec les hommes ayant des sous en poche, la jeune femme se lance dans des études qui lui permettront de devenir médecin et, surtout, de gagner honorablement sa vie sans le vil Ignace, le "bon parti" que ses parents rêvent de la voir épouser. Le gros bon sens et la culture qu'elle acquiert sont d'ailleurs souvent sollicités par ses amies, dont les nuits endiablées se terminent presque inévitablement par une grossesse indésirée, des disputes avec les parents, des luttes avec des rivales... -- Une bande dessinée campée en l'Afrique de la fin des années 1970, mettant en scène des jeunes dont les préoccupations tournent essentiellement autour des études, des amours et des relations difficiles avec les parents. Les illustrations aux couleurs chaudes rendent bien, par de vifs traits de crayon, la vivacité et l'esprit fêtard des Africains, dont le langage coloré est parsemé d'expressions argotiques. Un lexique explicitant ces dernières, la technique pour nouer un pagne ainsi que quelques recettes traditionnelles complètent le tout. [SDM]
