We are extremely excited to announce our second group discussion book this year–With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. The book came out just yesterday, so you’d better head to your library or local bookstore soon so you can grab yourself a copy in time to join us for our discussion on June 5. We can’t wait to read this book!
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.
