❝I want more than just a voice, I want a louding voice. I want to enter a room and people will hear me even before I open my mouth to be speaking. I want to live in this life and help many people so that when I grow old and die, I will still be living through the people I am helping.❞
This year, I have made a commitment to choosing what I read a bit more intentionally. I have joined a book club here in Harare that is wonderfully diverse and the first books we have read together have been perfect choices- totally out of my typical choices.
The girl with the Louding Voice is not one that I read for book club, although I have no doubt it will be one of our selections this month.
I cannot overstate this.....THIS BOOK IS SPECTACULAR! Do not delay in purchasing a copy and insisting all your friends do the same. You will devour this book and you will want to talk about it. TRUST ME.
It has been years since a book impressed me this much.
This book is everything I hoped it would be and more. Abi Daré is an incredible storyteller. This debut novel centers around the life of Adunni, a fourteen-year-old Nigerian girl who doesn't want to go with the flow and follow the path her father and fate have dictated for her life.
