Not Your Mother's Book Club very proudly presents National Book Award and Printz winning author Elizabeth Acevedo in celebration of her stunning new novel, With the Fire On High. Elizabeth will be in conversation with Books Inc. in Alameda Store Manager & Bookseller Melanie Knight.
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.
