Flawlessly setting the stage for Abi Daré's award-winning novel, British narrator Adjoa Andoh presents 14-year-old Adunni, who is from Nigeria, with submissive and sad tones. Still grieving the loss of her mother, Adunni longs to complete her education and decide her own future, though countless obstacles impede her. Throughout the story, Andoh smoothly switches between distinctive characters as some unexpected friends help Adunni pursue her dream. Whether voicing Adunni's neglectful father, who marries her off for rent money, or Miss Tia, a caring woman who takes an interest in Adunni's education, Andoh imbues each character with distinct vocal traits. Audiobook listeners are sure to be drawn in by Andoh's expert narration as they journey alongside Adunni to find her "louding voice." V.T. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
