PLOT OF “THE LAST DAYS AT FORCADOS HIGH SCHOOL”
The novel is about the Solade and Coker families whose children Jimi and Efua are the two major characters. It is also about other minor characters who happen to be their colleagues at Forcados High.
The novel hooks us immediately through family and individual conflicts exhibited at home and at school. These led to the arrests of Wole and Jimi Solade by the police, and mistaken suspensions of Jimi and Efua by school Management.
Before resolving these conflicts we are taken through a series of unfortunate events including a family tragedy, a paternal disappearance, revelations of incest and what looks like a gay relationship, drug use and prostitution, burglary, breakdown of school and personal friendships. The story climaxes at the point we got to know that the assumed lesbian relationship between Efua and one of the school’s NYSC female teachers is actually a farce.
Thereafter, all actions fall towards resolving most of the conflicts enumerated above. It is a matter of personal conjecture if the final resolution is a logical conclusion from the conflicts and story’s climax………………..
