Clap When You Land

Written in verse, this book is loosely inspired by the real-life crash of American Airlines Flight 587 in 2001 which was traveling to the Dominican Republic and crashed in Queens, New York, killing 260 people. Told in alternating points of view, it follows the lives of half-sisters Camino and Yahaira Rios, neither of whom know of the other's existence until the death of their father on board the doomed flight. Their father's secrets unravel post-death, and a deeply emotional, moving and completely compulsive story comes together.
