Description
"All you have are your words. Adunni is a fourteen-year-old Nigerian girl who knows what she wants: an education. The only daughter of a broke father, she is a valuable commodity. Removed from school and sold as a third wife to an old man, Adunni finds that her life amounts to this: four goats, two bags of rice, some chickens, and a new TV. When unspeakable tragedy swiftly strikes in her new home, she is secretly sold as a domestic servant to a household in the wealthy enclaves of Lagos, where no one will talk about the strange disappearance of her predecessor, Rebecca. No one but Adunni. As a yielding daughter, a subservient wife, and a powerless servant, Adunni is repeatedly told that she is nothing. But Adunni won't be silence. She is determined to find her voice--in a whisper, in song, in broken English--until she can speak for herself, for the girls like Rebecca who came before, and for all the girls who will follow." --book jacket
