June Book Club


Happy June book babies! I cannot believe summer is already here, but honestly I'm so ready for it. I come alive in the summer; Everything feels slow and possible. I feel like I'm shedding my winter skin and ready to have fun, tackle my goals, & read all day long. This month Jen picked our book club selection With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. I had never heard of this book, but I'm excited to dive in! 

What's it about?

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.
