Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 July 2020
This review has been long awaited. I can not stop thinking about this book and the swarm of feelings it gave me while reading. I connected with this book and Emoni in so many ways possible that I never would have imagined. A teenage girl trying so hard to meet her dreams and live her young life while holding the responsiblity of raising a baby, along with many other challenges of being a teenage mother.
.
I connected to this book in a way I haven’t connected to others. I, myself am a young mother of a three-year-old boy and experienced most of what Emoni experienced throughout this book. Emoni is an amazing character who is strong and an inspiration to other young mothers. I could read her story over and over again.
.
Emoni is an aspiring chef and a good one. Reading this book will make you hungry and wanting so badly to eat her cooking. I wish I could. It was so fun reading a book that talks about food. Who doesn’t love food? It’s such a unique book, something I haven’t read before.
.
𝐃𝐢𝐝 𝐢 𝗺𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝗼𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐛𝗼𝗼𝐤 𝐜𝗼𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐩𝐢𝐞𝐬?
.
One of my new favourite books. I can not stop talking about it and will keep talking about it for a long time. It will be on my shelves for years to come, for me to read again and again. Elizabeth Acevedo is an amazing story teller and writer. I can not wait for her to release more books.
