Charming. I liked how Emoni did not have the stereotypical, pregnant teenage mother story we’re accustomed to seeing in media. ( )
  DestDest | Sep 6, 2021 |
The plot of the story is quite straightforward. There is no tension, no high point in the story. It is interesting, but not very engaging.

The most interesting part for me was about cooking and recipes. I love everything about cooking, and I was happy to learn more about it from this novel. One more new thing for me was reading about teen pregnancy. I must admit, I admire Emoni's strong will and feeling of responsibility.

There is a little bit of family drama here, but generally, it was a rather cozy reading. ( )

diverse teen fiction (black Puerto Rican American teen mother with natural talent for cooking thinks about life after graduation from high school and how to balance her family needs with college/job/lovelife)
poetic, real, intelligent prose from award-winning author E. Azevedo. More, please. ( )

Elizabeth Acevedo has a way with words that sounds almost music-like. She narrates her own books and it's beautiful to hear the way she imagined her own story. Emoni, our main character, is a beautiful soul who loves to cook and loves her baby girl who she had at 16 years old. This offered a view into a life that I've never experienced and don't even know any of my students who have experienced it. It gave me a newfound sense of respect for those who have children at a young age and how much they try to overcome after having a baby. The difficult choices they have to make in order to guarantee that their children have the best life and everything that requires the parent to give up. But this story was so uplifting. It made me want to go in the kitchen and cook something. Or go a find a place that would serve up food as tasty as Emoni was creating. I will read anything that Elizabeth Acevedo puts out in the future! ( )

Black Like Me: I've lived my whole life having people question what race I am. In Fairhill [Philadelphia], we are mostly Spanish-speaking Caribbeans and Philly-raised Black Americans with roots in the South. (p. 68)

This stuff is complicated. But it's like I'm some long-division problem folks keep wanting to parcel into pieces, and they don't hear me when I say: I don't reduce, homies. The whole of me is whole. (p. 70)
Catharsis: I don't know much about pathogens and storing sugar, but damn if I don't know how to cook good food that makes people hungry for more, that makes people remember food is meant to feed more than an empty belly. It's also meant to nourish your heart. And that's one thing you won't ever learn from no textbook. (p. 93)
