I’ve read a lot of books set in Nigeria, but this one is closest to my heart. When Adunni, a fourteen year old is forced into a marriage and then flees, she ends up basically a slave in the home of a wealthy Lagos woman. What Adunni wants moe than anything else is an education so she can become a teacher. She wants to make a difference—in her words she wants a louding voice. How she accomplishes her goals really isn’t that much different than that of Westover in EDUCATED. Adunni meets caring people along the way who are willing to push her into becoming the person she wants to be. Of course, its not just those people. Its Adunni’s inner strength that propels her forward.
