Elizabeth Acevedo

Clap When You Land

Dreams are like the pieces of fluff that get caught in your hair;
they stand out for a moment,
but eventually you wash them away,
or long fingers reach in
& pluck them out
& you appear as what everyone expects.

Camino Rios lives for the summers when her father visits her in the Dominican Republic. But this time, on the day when his plane is supposed to land, Camino arrives at the airport to see crowds of crying people…

In New York City, Yahaira Rios is called to the principal’s office, where her mother is waiting to tell her that her father, her hero, has died in a plane crash.

Separated by distance—and Papi’s secrets—the two girls are forced to face a new reality in which their father is dead and their lives are forever altered.

And then, when it seems like they’ve lost everything of their father, they learn of each other.
