Aged fourteen, she is a commodity, a wife, a servant.

She is also smart, funny, curious, with a spirit and joy infectious to those around her.

And despite her situation going from bad to worse, she has a plan to escape: she will find her 'louding voice' and get her education, so that she can speak up for herself - and all the girls who came before her.

As she turns enemies into friends and superiors into aides, Adunni will take you with her on a heart-breaking but inspiring journey from a small village to the wealthy enclaves of Lagos, and show you that no matter the situation, there is always some joy to be found.

Reviews for The Girl with the Louding Voice

A stunning novel - original, beautiful and powerful. I was utterly captivated by Adunni and her mesmerising louding voice. A bold new storyteller . . . Abi Dare's fearless debut is a celebration of girls who dare to dream and those who help them unfurl their wings so that they might soar Adunni's voice weaves and dances its way across the pages with a rhythm that captivated me, astonished me and, more than once, broke my heart
