Elizabeth Acevedo is so good at creating unique and real voices for her characters. I loved the way Emoni was written - she jumped off the page with how real she was. I really appreciated this coming-of-age story about a girl who had a baby at 14, but continued on with school, and in her senior year struggled with figuring out what path she wanted to take to be able to provide a good life for her daughter, while also not losing herself.
