Born into poverty in Nigeria, Adunni dreams of becoming a teacher, but when her father’s debts force her to leave school and marry a much older man with two other wives, she must flee the life she knows and rely on her wit and indominable spirit to make her dream a reality. An astonishing debut and an unforgettable portrayal of hope triumphing over despair, The Girl with the Louding Voice is easily one of the best books I have ever read.

'A stunning novel - original, beautiful and powerful' Rosamund Lupton

Meet Adunni, a teenage girl born into a rural Nigerian village.

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.
