The Girl with the Louding Voice

Shortlisted for the 2020 Desmond Elliott Prize

Adunni is a fourteen-year-old Nigerian girl who knows what she wants: an education. Her mother has told her it's the only way to get a 'louding voice' - the ability to speak for herself and decide her own future. But when her mother dies her life changes overnight, and as a yielding daughter, a subservient wife, and a powerless domestic servant, Adunni is repeatedly told by words and deeds that she is nothing.

But Adunni will not be silenced.

When she realises that she must stand up not only for herself but for other girls, the ones who came before her and were lost, and the girls who will inevitably follow, she finds the resolve to speak, however she can - in a whisper, in song, in broken English - until she is heard.

From a rural village to the wealthy enclaves of contemporary Lagos, Adunni's voice will sound loudly in your ears far beyond the final page.
