Description

Then along comes Yahaira and turns her life upside down, changes everything she thought she knew about her father.

A space yawns open in the lives of Camino Rios and Yahaira Rios after their father dies in a flight crash, an absence made even more acute by the truths it reveals: Camino and Yahaira are half-sisters who didn't know of each other’s existence.Camino and her Tía's relationship blended in so well, and the importance of family, love, and communication developed so well. But Yahaira has other plans, not least when she's contacted by a girl named Camino Rios who bears an undeniable resemblance to Papi, and to her too. The audiobook, produced by Harper Audio and narrated by Melania-Luisa Marte and Elizabeth Acevedo, was released on the same date. Yahaira, who discovered a secret about her father before he died, feels guilty, angry, and deceived, yet doesn’t know how to live without her hero. Poetry is not my friend, but Acevedo manages to make this novel more lyrical, while maintaining her tone of heartbreak, sadness, grief, agony, and anger through every verse.

Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). Me in person when a man is telling me that poetry is gross: Would you say a song without music is gross?So, I stand corrected, I love me some Poetry and these two authors have inspired me to go and find out more about a genre it would seem I held a prejudice against. Similar to how it’s described in the book, the crash had a large impact on the New York Dominican community. Sometimes you feel the burning sensation coming from your heart during your read and you want to stop for taking few breaths because the characters already conquered your soul and it’s so natural to ache and deeply care for them.

I’m honestly at a loss for how to describe this book without telling you to read it, if you haven’t; the story itself is fairly small and constrained, and it’s centered on relationships, trusting yourself, and navigating family secrets. I wanted to read “Clap When You Land” for ages and even spoke about it in my ”New Library Book Haul” video!

The two thought of their father as their hero, never thought there was someone more inspiring than him, and the constant hurt they have to to go through after his death wrecks the reader. Her father goes home to the Dominican Republic each summer, which causes a strain on his relationship with her mother.

Printz Award, the Pura Belpré Award, the Carnegie medal, the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, and the Walter Award. Little did I know that it would be the perfect way to enhance the impact of Yahaira’s and Camino’s story. I noticed that I read it differently that I usually do, actually sounding out each line in the mental voice instead of reading in chunks like I usually do — I guess like you *would* read poetry — and I loved it.Maybe anger is like a river, maybe it crumbles everything around it, maybe it hides so many skeletons beneath the rolling surface.
