the girl with the louding voice by abi dare
coming-of-age / african cultural fiction, 379 PP
Adunni, the main character in The Girl with the Louding Voice, comes alive with her dreams and desires. Seeking to improve her position, living as a slave in a wealthy Nigerian household, Adunni finds her strength to fight from a neighboring woman and a fellow household servant. I absolutely love the title and the premise of a young woman striving to find and use her “louding” voice. The backdrop of contemporary day Nigeria also educates on the country’s economic and political hierarchies and the class differences which are no different than other countries.
That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.Jhumpa Lahiri
