This story of high school senior Emoni Santiago is an exploration of food, culture, and motherhood. Listen to the audiobook if you can! The author is also the narrator and really brings the story to life.

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
"I wanted to love it, but just so-so for me. I'm sure it will be a movie, but it just didn't ring true for me. Nonetheless the heroine is unforgettable!" —Julia S.
