I don’t need to read the blurb to know that I will be reading this book.
No diggety, no doubt.

So this cover pops up in my feed and I'm like: "Wow".
And then I read the synopsys and my mind is like:
"Damn, this would probably be great on audiobook format, but maybe I'm just picturing this as an Elizabeth Acevedo type of thing."
And then I looked up to actually see who wrote this.
I swear to god you can *smell* this woman's talent.

A brilliant novel and a raw and honest depiction of Dominican identity, sisterhood and family. Elizabeth Acevedo never disappoints 💜
