With the Fire on High | Elizabeth Acevedo

This book was sensational! (And mouth watering)

This #OwnVoices Bildungsroman follows Emoni, an Afro-Latinx teen mom, during her senior year of high school. It is a beautiful book that covers a lot of heavy issues, and was a truly enjoyable read. I think it‘s a stand alone, but I would love to see a sequel to find out what happens a next in Emoni‘s life.

It would be a great pick for the Bildungsroman #pop2020 prompt for anyone looking for ideas.

Short vignettes that describe Espernaza‘s early teenage years growing up as an immigrant on mango street I‘m chicago. So much is captured in each story about economic struggle, belonging, and growing up. #ya #Bbrc #authenticvoice @LibrarianRyan
