With the Fire On High | Hot Take Review

I almost resent books that make me hungry. Like, why you gotta go and do that? Seriously, this book made me so hungry.

Hot Take On:

Book cover of With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo

With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo

This was good. I enjoyed the story, I really liked the characters, the food, and the culture that Acevedo infused into this world. It’s a pretty quick, easy read and I enjoyed the journey it took me on.

It’s a nice message on single-parenting/teen pregnancy. Emoni’s time isn’t easy, but she’s so lucky to have the support system she does. She also just seems to be a naturally good parent, which was nice to see. The romance felt a little unnecessary, simply because Emoni drew some clear lines and then almost right away broke them, and it just felt out of character and a little ridiculous. But other than that nit-pick, this was a good story.

My rating: Definitely Worth the Read.

My GIF Reaction:
