An Appetite for Miracles

April 4

There are two young people leaning back to back. The young man is holding a guitar and playing. The young woman has her head tilted up and her eyes are closed. There is a huge moon and stars, but the sky is golden. There are lilies in front of them. An Appetite for Miracles by Laekan Zea Kemp
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Danna Mendoza Villarreal’s grandfather is slowly losing himself as his memories fade, and Danna’s not sure her plan to help him remember through the foods he once reviewed will be enough to bring him back. Especially when her own love of food makes her complicated relationship with her mother even more difficult.

Raúl Santos has been lost ever since his mother was wrongly incarcerated two years ago. Playing guitar for the elderly has been his only escape, to help them remember and him forget. But when his mom unexpectedly comes back into his life, what is he supposed to do when she isn’t the same person who left?

When Danna and Raúl meet, sparks fly immediately and they embark on a mission to heal her grandfather…and themselves. Because healing is something best done together—even if it doesn’t always look the way we want it to. — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
