I listened to this audio book which was read by the author Elizabeth Acevedo and it was phenomenal! Her style of writing was beautiful and they way her words flowed together was very heartfelt. She spoke about real things young ladies experience when our bodies develop in our teen years and men feel they can talk and treat us in certain ways. Just because the main character Xiomara had curves, did not mean she was fast (she was quite the opposite), she couldn't help the way her body was shaped. She did not take mess from anyone. I wish I had her courage and fierceness at that age. This book is full of beautifully flawed characters that made the story everything it needed to be. Definitely one of my favorites reads from 2019.
