Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo

My post contentI’m gonna need Elizabeth Acevedo to crawl out of my soul because this is too much. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this woman is incapable of writing anything but 5 star masterpieces.

I can’t actually talk about this book without breaking down so I’m gonna leave it at that.


So this cover pops up in my feed and I'm like: "Wow".
And then I read the synopsys and my mind is like:
"Damn, this would probably be great in audiobook format, but maybe I'm just picturing this as an Elizabeth Acevedo type of thing."
And then I looked up to actually see who wrote this.
I swear to god you can *smell* this woman's talent.
