When a plane crashes with their father on board, two sisters who have never met discover all the secrets that connect their lives, their grief, and their future paths as they figure out where to go from here. Taking readers deep into a knotty tangle of sorrow, jealousy, and love, National Book Award winner Elizabeth Acevedo’s newest novel in verse offers a moving testament to the power of sisterhood.
