***

Mum calls me Maame. It has many meanings in Twi, but in my case, it means woman.

Meet Maddie.

To her mostly-absent mum, she’s Maame, the woman of the family. To her dad, she’s his carer – even if he hardly recognises her. To her friends, she’s the one who still lives at home, who never puts herself first.

It’s time to become the woman she wants to be.

The kind who wears a bright yellow suit, says yes to after-work drinks and flirts with a thirty-something banker. Who doesn’t have to google all her life choices. Who demands a seat at the table.

But to put ourselves together, sometimes we have to fall apart…

Unique, unforgettable and unfiltered, Maame is an achingly funny, heartbreaking and life-affirming debut for everyone who has ever needed to find their voice.
