With the Fire on High is a book written in the young adult fiction genre. This book is about the struggles of a young woman named Enomi, who got pregnant at the age of 14 while she was living with her grandmother, or Abuelita, in a small city in Philadelphia. Fast forward two years and Emoni is a talented senior at Fairhill High School. She has always had an incredible knack for cooking and has masterful hands that have been creating delectable dishes since she learned how to hold a knife. Abuelita and her best friend Angelica have helped her raise Babygirl, but when 'Buela suddenly has all these strange doctor's appointments, Emoni gets worried. Emoni continues to go to school but starts to skip her culinary arts class after Chef Ayden tells her to trash her dish. Oh yeah, and she might have also just met the love of her life.
This book would be a choice for readers looking for a strong female lead with a hidden soft side.
