Despite their novel, Break This House, being written in prose, Candice Iloh’s history of writing poetry is woven into the book’s fabric. On top of being beautifully written, Minah’s story of confronting her past — almost literally by traveling back to her hometown after learning of a family tragedy — is one that is sure to inspire and encourage young adults everywhere to be open with who they are and how they feel.
We are delighted to welcome Candice onto the show this week to talk about their writing and the inspirations behind Break This House.
