Words can’t express how excited I am for With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. I’m a huge fan of her debut novel The Poet X and am really looking forward to this novel about a teen mom with aspirations of becoming a chef. Also, the cover for this one is stunning and I can’t wait to hold a copy of it in my hands. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

      “From the New York Times bestselling author of the National Book Award longlist title The Poet X comes a dazzling novel in prose about a girl with talent, pride, and a drive to feed the soul that keeps her fire burning bright.
      Ever since she got pregnant freshman year, Emoni Santiago’s life has been about making the tough decisions—doing what has to be done for her daughter and her abuela. The one place she can let all that go is in the kitchen, where she adds a little something magical to everything she cooks, turning her food into straight-up goodness.
      Even though she dreams of working as a chef after she graduates, Emoni knows that it’s not worth her time to pursue the impossible. Yet despite the rules she thinks she has to play by, once Emoni starts cooking, her only choice is to let her talent break free.”

  1. I’m also really looking forward to this book! I was thinking of recommending Acevedo to a high school English teacher who came in… but she was looking specifically at adult literary fiction by Latina authors.
