Today’s review is for Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo. This review can also be found on Goodreads.
CW: Death, sexual assault, stalking
I absolutely loved this book and how it was written in verse, I also loved the diversity. This book was heartbreaking but hopeful. There are some powerful quotes in Clap When You Land, one of my favorite quotes is “…a queen is both: deadly & graceful. Poised & ruthless. Quiet & cunning.” Another one of my favorites is “A queen offers her hand to be kissed, & can form it into a fish while smiling the whole damn time.” This book is a book that needs to be read, it’s emotional, important, and while I am not represented in this book I felt the authenticity.
