'A stunning novel - original, beautiful and powerful' ROSAMUND LUPTON

Meet Adunni, a fourteen year old living in a Nigerian village outside Lagos.

She is a downtrodden daughter, desperately missing her deceased mother, and will soon become a despised third wife then an abused domestic servant.

She is expected to be meek, quiet, obedient.

Adunni is none of these things. She is determined and loyal and curious.

This is the story of Adunni's pursuit of education. Her search to find her louding voice.

So that she can speak for herself - and for all the girls who came before her.
