Family Lore by Elizabeth Acevedo, National Book Award–winning author of The Poet X, portrays a Dominican American family told through the voices of its women. Flor has a gift—she has an uncanny ability to predict when someone will die. So when she decides she wants a living wake so that she can participate in the celebration of her life, her sisters are worried. Spanning three days prior to the wake, Family Lore traces the lives of each of the Marte women, weaving together past and present, Santo Domingo and New York City, creating an indelible portrait of one family’s journey through their history.

Elizabeth Acevedo is the New York Times bestselling author of The Poet X, With the Fire on High—named a best book of the year by the New York Public Library, NPR, and Publishers Weekly—and Clap When You Land, a Kirkus finalist.

Family Lore is full of beautiful prose, even-handed magic, and all the pains and triumphs of intergenerational bonds. Tender, moving, and altogether lovely. Not one word is wasted here.” —Kiley Reid
