The story of a teenage girl from a remote village in Nigeria whose only mission is to find a voice through education. Her trials and tribulations are heartbreaking and just when the reader feels sorrow for her, she reveals a streak of strength so powerful, that it reverberates. Her resolve to somehow get an education never shakes and her voice grows louder and louder until it resounds.
We traverse Nigeria’s dirt roads, markets, superstitions, atrocities, poverty, and gender discrimination with the larger-than-life Adunni.
Dare’ Adunni has faults: Her tenacity, her big mouth, and her discerning attitude. Adunni stays steadfast because of her faults.
