Finished. But had to start over 😂. No fault to the book. I couldn‘t remember who was who and what was what. And missed key points. This sometimes happens with an audio book when I‘m multitasking or listening in bed.

This is such an American story. A coming of age story. A global impact story. A family story. With emotion and life lesson tossed though-out the pages. Interesting story based on a true and tragic plane crash in 2001 after 9-11.

tmjg1978 Thanks for this. I downloaded a sample of it, but hadn't gotten into it myself. 1w
Lvpthemvp @tmjg1978 it‘s a good read. You will enjoy it 7d

I'm a big fan of Acevedo's writing, and I absolutely loved the story she told in this book. The dual narrators helped both sides of the story come alive and gave both girls the chance to win the reader over to her side. And, both literally and metaphorically, every line of Acevedo's writing is pure poetry.

Becker Agreed. This was a very good book. 1mo

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I tried reading it myself and I couldn‘t get into it, but once I started listening to the audio - it was amazing! I liked how it went back and forth between the two points of view of the girls, but there were times where I forgot which girl was which and would have to go back a bit to remember. Overall it was a great read and I would recommend.

I read the print copy of this while also listening to the audiobook. This was a great way of keeping the sister‘s voices straight. Yahaira and Camino are sisters who discover each other following the death of their father. This story was a beautiful exploration of grief and family.

Book 24-2021: I loved this book and I‘m so glad I listened to the audio version as I simply couldn‘t do the verse justice with my brain. The characters had depth, the relationships felt real, it was a pleasure to listen too although the story itself was filled with sadness and loss. Thank you to #Booked21 for helping me discover another gem I probably wouldn‘t of alone. #latinexauthor

Cinfhen Woohoo 🎉 So glad that #Booked2021 encouraged you to give this book a listen 💕 3mo

Unfortunately, I can't get into this book. The style of writing. I'm not a fan. I tried the ebook and couldn't. The audiobook isn't grabbing me in. I feel like they're about to rap or sing. I'm going to try again when I am not in an emotional state of mind.

If you have not listened to the audiobook for Clap When You land yet, do yourself a favor and download it right now!

While one daughter is grieving the loss of her father after a plane crash in the Dominican Republican, another daughter is grieving in New York City. The sisters never knew of each other or their father‘s other life.

Until today.

LOVED the narrator for this and how the writing literally sucks you in. I couldn‘t get enough of it!

BeaG I enjoyed the audiobook too. Great story. 4mo
KristenDuck @BeaG I was so impressed!! 4mo
nichollinlove I loved the audio also. The narrators really brought the characters to life and made the story feel genuine. 4mo

I ordered the Unhoneymooners a few weeks ago and kept forgetting to pick it up until today. While on that side of town, I stopped at the library…just to fill my water bottle. But we all know how that goes.

A novel told in verse. It was beautiful. A depth of emotion that is common in Acevedo‘s writing; especially in this particular style. I loved it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I LOVED this book so much that I immediately went to get her other book from the library upon finishing. It‘s a story written in verse about two sisters in different countries with different lives, cultures, and upbringings who share so much despite being so different. Very quick read. Highly recommend.

Just like The Poet X by the same author, I was amazed at how much emotion and complexity was conveyed with so few words. This is definitely a character-driven story and I loved getting to know the sisters and seeing their similarities and differences. I am still thinking about the differences between the sisters that exist because of privilege and what causes those privileges to exist.

Stories in verse are something I never thought I'd seek out but the prose is breathtaking when you become immersed in the fluidity of a culture, language and dialog though quick pace. Trying to think back but this may have been the first dual POV verse title I've read, but each sister deserved to share her perspective. Inspired by a true tragic event, I was in awe of this story.

BekaReid Great review, and I felt the same after reading this one. 7mo

Loved it! Told in verse, this is the story of Camino and Yahaira, half-sisters who find out about each other and their father‘s double life after he dies in a plane crash. The writing is just beautiful!

Acevedo is so incredibly talented. A story told in verse about the lose of a father and the unexpected news of an unknown sister. These two girls live worlds apart and now need to figure out how to deal with this all and move forward. 4.5⭐️

Interesting simile. It resonates. Life-changing news when the whole world feels out of sync with you....
One from the Carnegie Long list.

Elizabeth Acevedo is a must read author for me! She writes I verse and her words are powerful. I listened to this audiobook, which she narrated part of, and it was amazing.

Family secrets, cultural identity, loss of a parent, and learning to forgive are just some of the things explored in this YA book.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! 9mo

This was my first read in January and only second book with free verse that I have read. I think I like free verse style, need to read a few more. I think most of us have heard of this one. I very much enjoyed it. Both sisters are really amazing. I can't really imagine knowing your father having another family! Anyway great read! #books
