Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of the National Book Award longlist title The Poet X comes a dazzling novel in prose about a girl with talent, pride, and a drive to feed the soul that keeps her fire burning bright.

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.

Breath-taking

I have read many stories growing up and I must admit that at one point, I stopped. Reading became so much less important and skimming became an addiction to get through school. I must say that after so many years learning by doing, I cannot even begin to describe the feelings that reading this made my heart learn once again. I have been reading this on my way home everyday and I couldn’t have imagined a better way to end my night. Here I am, 3:17 AM, scrolling to the last page with happy tears in my eyes. Thank you, HLM
