By Dare, Abi
Fourteen-year-old Adunni's life is looking for her louding voice. She wants to be heard. But her desire for an education ranks low. She is the only daughter of a broke father, who sells her into marriage as the third wife of an older man. When life in her new home becomes untenab...le, she escapes, only to become a domestic slave in wealthy Lagos, where her voice is stolen again by her boss Big Madam. Again and again, Adunni is reminded that she is nothing. Again and again, Adunni riles against those above her. She is resolute in her quest to find her louding voice, and that is something nobody should underestimate. Because resolution can make you fearless, and Adunni knows that better than anyone.Read more
