book review on air with zoe washington janae marks

On Air With Zoe Washington (Zoe Washington, #2) by Janae Marks opens with Zoe Washington going to work with her birth father, who has recently been released from jail for a crime he was wrongfully convicted of committing.  As they have lunch together, Zoe finds out her father has a dream of opening up his own restaurant and hiring exonerees.  When she starts researching how to open a restaurant, Zoe realizes it is much more difficult than she thought it would be and takes to the airwaves by creating a podcast.

I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Reader's Edition, or Advanced Reader's Copy (ARC), of On Air With Zoe Washington (Zoe Washington, #2).  I was thrilled to be chosen to read this book in exchange for my honest review.  The expected publication date of this book is February 14, 2023.  When I asked to review this book and was waiting on approval, I didn't realize that it was the second book in a series.  It can definitely be read as a stand alone book, but I personally would recommend reading the books in order as it will help the reader understand the background of the characters.  

I am glad to see that there are more books representing people of color as it's important for everyone to be represented.  Another thing I'm glad to see is that it talks about people who were incarcerated that were innocent and the important work of the Innocence Project.  Additionally, I was pleased that On Air With Zoe Washington deals with a family dynamic that is more prominent in today's society where a child is raised by a biological parent and a step parent.

Is there anything negative I can say about this book?  Nope!  It's a fantastic book.  I thoroughly enjoyed On Air With Zoe Washington (Zoe Washington, #2) by Janae Marks and give it five out of five stars.
