All you have are your words.Adunni is a fourteen-year-old Nigerian girl who knows what she wants: an education.As 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’s 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 Lagos, where no one will talk about the strange disappearance of her predecessor, Rebecca. No one but Adunni . . .Adunni is repeatedly told that she is nothing. But she won’t be silenced. She is determined to find her voice – in 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.
