With the Fire on High

From the winner of the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2019

'A delicious, evocative story' THE GUARDIAN

From the author of THE POET X comes a sumptuous prose novel, perfect for fans of Angie Thomas' On the Come Up, Justin Reynolds' Opposite of Always and Nicola Yoon

Ever since she got pregnant, seventeen-year-old Emoni's life has been about making the tough decisions - doing what has to be done for her young daughter and her grandmother. Keeping her head down at school, trying not to get caught up with new boy Malachi. The one place she can let everything go is in the kitchen, where she has magical hands - whipping up extraordinary food beloved by everyone.

Emoni wants to be a chef more than anything, but she knows it's pointless to pursue the impossible. There are rules she has to play by. And yet, once she starts cooking, and gets that fire on high, she sees that her drive to feed will feed her soul and dreams too. And anything is possible.

'With its judicious depth and brilliant blazes of writing that simmer, then nourish, With the Fire on High is literary soul food' New York Times

Usually a strong and badass heroine in books kills dragons or fights demons but in With the Fire on High our main character shows her strength by being an amazing mom, caring about her family and putting her daughter first at all times. Emoni is an Afro-Puerto Rican teen that already has to deal with stereotypes and a difficult family constellation but then she ends up pregnant in her freshman year of high school. Most of the books that deal with teen pregnancy address the difficult decision of keeping the baby, giving it away or abortion. With the Fire on High shines a completely different light on the situation as it deals with life after having the baby. Emoni is an aspiring chef and I loved all of the recipes and food metaphors. I could really tell that it was her passion and the way she cooked and made others feel with her dishes was almost magical. There’s so much diversity and important representation in this book. It felt real and authentic and I loved learning more about Emoni’s heritage and culture. There was an amazing cast of characters: I loved Abuela Gloria and Angelica and Malachi and Chef Ayden. They all played an important role and weren’t forgotten halfway through the book. The writing was beautiful and I’m glad I decided to pick up the audiobook as well because it was amazing.
