The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré
Adunni's mother told her that the only way to get a "louding voice," the ability to create her own future, is through an education. The fourteen year old Nigerian girl longs for an education, but with her supportive mother dead and a father who believes girls do not need education, she is forced into an unhappy marriage with a man who already has two wives. A chance for escape only brings another horrible situation. Will Adunni have the strength to go on? The Girl with the Louding Voice is a powerful debut about fighting for our dreams.
