☕ Book Break ☕ | The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré

Adunni’s mother always stressed education for her daughter, and Adunni loves school. But her mother dies. Her father ignores the promise he made to his wife on her deathbed, the promise to send Adunni to school. Instead, he sells Adunni to be third wife to a man eager for a son.


She runs away to the city, only to find herself in servitude, with no rights and no resources. She finds a way to speak not only for herself, but for other girls.


The voice of the presentation of the main character story is beautifully done. I don’t think this is a story that could be easily forgotten. So very human and heartbreaking, yet hopeful.I  read this book from cover to cover. It kept me awake at night until I finished it.


Y’all know I regularly fall in love with fictional characters, but Adunni has completely stolen a piece of my heart but I don’t think I’m getting back. I will not forget her story.


All the stars.








Beautifully written.



For those sensitive to language, there are some terms used that could be considered crude language, but they are not used as such. It reads as if this is the everyday language.
