I'm currently writing a book in English, which is not my first language, and I just can't find the right word for talking with your voice raised, except for shouting and yelling..
"Alejandro, come talk to your dad on the phone," she ... from the living room.
I don't know which word fits the blank; said is too simple/boring and doesn't express the tone of the voice as much as the other words, but yelled and shouted are too aggressive.. I also thought of 'called out', but I'm not sure..
I'm really confused, someone help me..
