Interested in reading different genres within YA and possibly making a friend or two? Come to our virtual Discord book club where we read a YA book each month and discuss what we liked and didn’t like about the book without having to leave the comfort of home. From Mystery, to Fantasy, to Manga, to Nonfiction, we plan on touring the whole YA section.
This month our genre is Poetry! We’ll be reading Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo.
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.
