Product description

A searing, bittersweet verse novel by the author of The Poet X, which won the 2019 Carnegie Medal. Meet two grieving sisters, separated by thousands of miles… 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. Far away in New York City, Yahaira Rios is called to the principal’s office. Her mum 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 his death alone. Until, just when it seems they’ve lost everything of their dad, they learn about each other.

  • A dual narrative verse novel that brims with love and grief
  • About love, forgiveness and the bittersweet bonds between us
  • Elizabeth Acevedo won the Carnegie Medal for The Poet X
  • She is a champion slam poet who grew up in New York

*Please note this book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.
