Can't Wait Wednesday: With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo

Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme (that will help me remember what to buy for my library) that's hosted by Wishful Endings. It's based off the weekly meme Waiting on Wednesday that was hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Boy I can't wait to read 

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.

Guy, I'm so excited about this book. I haven't read many books that focus on a teen mom pursuing her dreams. We have a teen mom meeting a new guy, a teen mom trying to get the old guy back, a teen mom and her regrets, but this looks different and I'm READY!


  1. I won't lie, didn't even read the synopsis for this book when I added it to my TBR. The add was based solely on the fact that I loved Acevedo's first book and just want more of her work. Great pick!

    1. HAHAHA. I know right. I'm pretty excited!! Maybe it'll be an award winner!!

  2. This sounds good! Hope you enjoy it!
