Imagine learning that your father had another life miles away from where you grew up and he told you nothing about it. Finding out you have a sister in another country that he stays with for 75% of the year and he only spends the summers with you.
This was a really great read and I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It was a different style of writing, since it was written in poetry form, but the words and the expression was amazing. I started off reading and once I started listening to the audio, I couldn’t NOT listen to it lol.
The story is fiction, however it so realistic in many children’s lives and such a relatable story. The story had so much passion and it was heartfelt, that you can’t help but to keep reading.
This is my first Elizabeth Acevedo book, but I plan on reading more of her books because I absolutely loved this one!
Have you read Clap When You Land? What were your thoughts?
