Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I couldn't stop reading about Camino and Yahiara, but I didn't want their story to end!!
Camino's father visits her in the Dominican Republic every summer, but as she waits for his plane she knows something isn't right.
In NYC, Yahaira knows that it's always tense around her house in the days before her father goes "home" to the Dominican Republic each summer, but when she's called to her school office she has no idea what's waiting for her.
Though secrets have kept these sisters apart for their entire lives, their father's sudden death exposes the truth and through grief and loss they find something new.
This novel-in-verse brims with culture, emotion, and honesty.
