The stunning New York Times bestselling novel from the 2019 Carnegie Medal winning, Waterstones Book Prize shortlisted author of THE POET X. Early on, Acevedo establishes that he's a threat, and the main reason why Camino feels unsafe where she lives. This story was so moving and heartfelt, addled with grief, loss and having your world altered due to death and family secrets.In this novel we follow two sisters perspectives and how they are grappling the devastation of their fathers death. Written in a dual narrative we spend a lot of time with both girls and learning of the impacts of the loss of their Father in both environment. Sometimes you feel the burning sensation coming from your heart during your read and you want to stop for taking few breaths because the characters already conquered your soul and it’s so natural to ache and deeply care for them. I especially loved this one because I love stories that follow sisters and this format and story-telling style was really interesting, I liked going back and forth between their POV's. The way she tells her story is similar to a regular novel, but at the same time, the rhythm is there.

that one day I will not be left behindWe then jump back into Yahaira's POV, and I was happy to realise that another reason why the girls' POVs were easier to distinguish whilst reading the book is the fact that Acevedo switched up her writing style: Yahaira's chapters feel a lot more lighthearted, especially in the beginning. He is their idol, their hero and when he dies in a plane crash flying from New York to the Dominican Republic they are heartbroken.The writing is so descriptive and detailed that you truly get a feel for life in the New York Dominican Community and life in the Dominican Republic, especially for a young woman. 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. In two distinct voices, Acevedo explores the rich inner lives of the sudden half-sisters as they grapple with their complicated feelings about their father and the secrets he kept. To access you ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. I am not Dominican, but the constant descriptions of the food of la Republica Dominicana and the colors vibrating the island made me think of my second home, my parents home country, the land that saw them grow - El Salvador.
