With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevado

Raising her toddler daughter alongside her grandmother and working part-time while finishing up her senior year of high school, seventeen year-old Emoni Santiago still finds time in her hectic day to create magic through cooking. When a new culinary arts class opens up at her school, she immediately signs up. Emoni put forth her persistence, passion and determination to become the best chef possible. Elizabeth Acevedo allows food to be the poetry for the plate as much as poetry was for the page like in her first novel Poet X.
