Everything you need to understand or teach Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo.
Elizabeth Acevedo’s young adult novel written in verse tells the story of two teenage sisters; Yahaira in New York City and Camino in the Dominican Republic. They do not know of the others’ existence until their father’s tragic death in a plane crash in the ocean, while he was traveling for his annual summer visit to spend with Camino. As the two girls manage the aftermath and fallout of his death, their lives and worlds collide. Structured loosely to mimic the same plot as Shakespeare’s The Tempest, this novel employs a variety of unique language and structural styles, while exploring the themes of the Power of Female Relationships, Spirits and Ghosts, and Secrets.
