Traveling Sisters Book Reviews

Traveling together through books. Join us on our adventures through the books we read

The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré is one not to missed!! I loved everything about this story and character!!

The Girl with the Louding Voice is a powerfully unforgettable story about an extraordinary 14-year-old Nigerian girl’s journey in finding her louding voice to use it to do better, do more. To fight for her choice for a future not only for herself but to help other girls in Nigeria who must obey their fathers and are defined by their marriages find theirs. I loved everything about Adunni and her story, and she is a character to admire.

“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”

Abi Daré gives Adunni her own louding voice here in the story that shines through her actions. I loved how she showed me what it means to have a louding voice. Adunni faces loneliness, setbacks and suffering that broke my heart. Her courage, empathy, kindness and strength put my heart back together. I loved her curiosity and her will to understand everyone and everything around her.

The characters and relationships between them are unforgettable, and I loved the contrast here with how different the women are and their experiences that shaped them and how they use their voices. I loved the endearing relationships Adunni had, and with each one, she learns something about herself, and how to find her voice.

I listened and read this one, and the pose is different from what I am used too. It did take some time to get used to but once I did, I could hear both the narrators and Adunni’s voice that drew me right into the story. Abi Daré and the narrator beautifully capture the voice and sound of Adunni. I could clearly hear not only her voice but her louding voice slowly coming out. I highly recommend this one and the audiobook

I received a copy from the publisher on Edelweiss.
