Publisher's summary

An Odyssey Honor Audiobook

In a novel-in-verse that brims with grief and love, National Book Award-winning and New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth Acevedo writes about the devastation of loss, the difficulty of forgiveness, and the bittersweet bonds that shape our lives.

Don't miss the audiobook, read by Elizabeth Acevedo, the beloved author and narrator of The Poet X, winner of an Odyssey Honor and an AudioFile Earphones Award winner.

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.

Editor's Pick

Elizabeth Acevedo does it again!
As a Dominican-American, I am loving that so many recent works are exploring the cultural DNA of the island and its people ( Dominicana by Angie Cruz and Julia Alvarez’s Afterlife come to mind). Elizabeth Acevedo’s latest novel, Clap When You Land, takes it to another level. The lives of two sisters are shattered when their father is killed in a plane crash. Yahaira lives in New York, and Camino in the Dominican Republic—and neither know the other exists. This tragic accident will bring them together—but how? Camino’s life is turned upside-down as she is left without a financial lifeline. Meanwhile, Yahaira’s frustrations with her father are so trivial compared to everything Camino has to deal with. Acevedo’s verse is beautiful and draws the listener immediately, skillfully switching between Camino's and Yahaira's voices. The sisters are unique, juxtaposed through their upbringing, but joined in their grief. They are trying to come to terms with not only their father's death, but with each other. Clap When You Land is an incredibly powerful and emotional work, and a must listen!
