With the Fire on High

With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo

Day One

With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo”

  1. Sounds intriguing. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “HEAVEN ADJACENT”

  2. Sounds tense, I’m wondering why!

    Stay safe!

    Here is my Tuesday post.

  3. Oh I sympathize with both the child and the mother (I’m assuming?) here. Hair was never my thing and was I glad when I was no longer responsible for girl’s hair!

  4. I can sympathize.

  5. Trying to post again –

    This sounds like a really intriguing book.

  6. I feel for that mother! two girls with difficult hair!

  7. Sounds good 🙂 The characters sound like they’ll be interesting, even in such a short peek.
