It was touching to see the parental love he had for both his children but the complexity and the impacts on other areas of his life. Just send a semi-regular round up of reviews, things we find interesting, and Shannon’s beauty recommendations. I have loved the book written in verse 'The Poet X" years ago when it came out and I was in the middle of reading her other book 'With The Fire On High' which came out just last year.

Written in free verse, it sounds like lyrical speech, a lyrical prose, a spoken word with different rhythms — nothing that my rigid understanding would have seen as poetry.

The topics of grief, identity and love are presented with care but also with the raw emotion expected.It made me tear up a few times, one thing that I didn't like was how long it took for the two sisters to finally meet, but when we got there it stopped bothering me because it was so well written. Maybe anger is like a river, maybe it crumbles everything around it, maybe it hides so many skeletons beneath the rolling surface. This is so poignant, lyrical, heartfelt, well-conceived, true to life, sublime, extremely emotional novel about two sisters’ bounding story who never knew each other till an unexpected accident shatters their lives and takes their father away from them. Elizabeth Acevedo explores all of those questions and tries to find an answer for her two protagonists. But when Camino is at the airport waiting for her father's bright smile and loud laugh, she didn't expect to see a crowd of crying people.

Rereading this book was the best decision of my reading year thus far, apart, maybe, from finally picking up a Toni Morrison novel.Yet on the day his plane is to arrive and she waits for him at the airport, she learns that his plane has crashed.

The second poignant, powerful and passionate novel in verse from the 2019 Carnegie Medal winning, Waterstones Book Prize shortlisted author of THE POET X. Written in a dual narrative we spend a lot of t Printz Award, the Pura Belpré Award, the Boston Globe–Horn Book Award, and the Walter Award, amongst many others. I read other reviews that struggled with differentiating between Camino and Yahira's voices, but that is something I didn't feel while listening.

You experience the black holes being created in both girls chests for the Father their worlds revolved around now gone forever, the pain of life never being the same.

How can Cami and Yaya love their father and mourn him and at the same time wonder if they can ever really forgive him? One of the things we see is the risk to young women being taken advantage of by men resulting in owing a “debt” or needing to go to certain lengths to survive, seeing Camino trying desperately to avoid that life for herself after losing the protection her Father had provided her during his life was eye opening to the culture most of us aren’t aware of. She's angry that she's able to freely and easily travel to DR without any issues; angry that she has more open options for her future; angry that she still has a parent; angry that her father spent more time with her. Yahaira and Camino didn’t even know that they are half-sisters and after their father’s death layer after layer of his complicated life gets exposed.A love they never thought they could have because it never crossed their mind that they could have a sibling, a sister to love so dearly. Yahaira notices the gentrification in New York: in the area where her tight-knit Dominican American community used to live hipster cafes and bars have sprung up. This owes in huge part to Acevedo's deft, tender characterization and the tremendous empathy she artfully infuses her novel with, offering the reader so many questions, but not giving any direct or easy answers. And it's just so distressing that he is the reason why Camino knows there is no safe future for her in the DR.
