The Girl with the Louding Voice follows Adunni, a fourteen-year old who is forced to marry a man after her mother dies. She manages to escape so she can get one step closer to reaching her goal of going to school. I enjoyed Adunni as a character, and how tough she was for a teenager, but the story hits a standstill toward the middle of the book. The side characters also seem very underdeveloped. It's a well-loved, important, and difficult story to read, so if you're at all interested, then I recommend you give it a go.
