The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“I want more than just a voice, I want a louding voice. I want to enter a room and people will hear me even before I open my mouth to be speaking.”
The coming of age story of Adunni, a young Nigerian girl sold into servitude. All she wants is an education. And she will stop at nothing to get it. She wants to be not just any girl, but The Girl With The Louding Voice. A girl who will be heard and respected. Narrated in broken English, we see Adunni evolve with strength and admiration. I absolutely loved her. This book is a great choice for readers looking to try authors with different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Five stars.
