Separated by distance -- and Papi's secrets -- the two girls are forced to face a new reality in which their father is dead and their lives are forever altered. And then, when it seems like they've lost everything of their father, they learn of each other. Papi's death uncovers all the painful truths he kept hidden, and the love he divided across the ocean. And now Yahaira and Camino are both left to grapple with what a new sister means to them and what it take to keep their dreams alive. In a novel in verse tht brims with both grief and love, award-winning and bestseller author Elizabeth Acevedo writes about the devastation of loss, the difficulty of forgiveness, and the bittersweet bonds that shape our lives."--Publisher's description.
