The Elizabeth Acevedo 3 Books Collection is a must-have for fans of contemporary young adult fiction. This collection features three of Acevedo's critically acclaimed novels, including With the Fire on High, Clap When You Land, and The Poet X. Each of these books is a testament to Acevedo's remarkable talent for storytelling and her ability to create complex and relatable characters.

With the Fire on High is a novel about a young woman named Emoni Santiago who dreams of becoming a chef. Emoni is a seventeen-year-old high school senior who is raising her young daughter alone, and she faces many challenges as she tries to balance school, work, and motherhood. Despite these obstacles, Emoni is determined to pursue her passion for cooking, and she enrols in a culinary arts class at her school. With the Fire on High is a beautifully written novel about family, love, and following your dreams.

Clap When You Land is a novel about two sisters, Camino and Yahaira, who live in different parts of the world. Camino lives in the Dominican Republic, where she helps her aunt in a hospital and dreams of attending college in the United States. Yahaira lives in New York City, where she is a talented chess player and has a strained relationship with her father. When their father dies in a plane crash, Camino and Yahaira discover that they are half-sisters and must navigate the complexities of their new relationship. Clap When You Land is a poignant and powerful novel about family, identity, and the ways in which our lives are connected.

The Poet X is a novel in verse about a young woman named Xiomara who lives in Harlem and is struggling to find her voice. Xiomara is a talented poet, but she feels stifled by her strict Catholic parents and the expectations of her community. As she begins to explore her identity and her art, Xiomara must confront the prejudices and injustices that surround her. The Poet X is a beautifully written and deeply moving novel about the power of words and the importance of finding your own voice.

Elizabeth Acevedo's writing is characterized by its beauty, lyricism, and emotional depth. Her novels tackle important themes such as family, identity, and the pursuit of dreams, and her characters are richly drawn and fully realized. Acevedo's writing has been compared to that of Toni Morrison and Maya Angelou, and she has won numerous awards for her work, including the National Book Award for Young People's Literature.

The Elizabeth Acevedo 3 Books Collection is an excellent introduction to the work of this talented author.

Description from the Publisher: 

With the Fire on High: From the winner of the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2019

Ever since she got pregnant, seventeen-year-old Emoni's life has been about making the tough decisions - doing what has to be done for her young daughter and her grandmother. Keeping her head down at school, trying not to get caught up with the new boy, Malachi. The one place she can let everything go is in the kitchen, where she has magical hands - whipping up extraordinary food beloved by everyone.

Clap When You Land

Camino Rios lives for the summers when her father visits her in the Dominican Republic. But this time, on the day when his plane is supposed to land, Camino arrives at the airport to see crowds of crying people... In New York City, Yahaira Rios is called to the principal's office, where her mother is waiting to tell her that her father, her hero, has died in a plane crash.


Xiomara has always kept her words to herself. When it comes to standing her ground in her Harlem neighbourhood, she lets her fists and her fierceness do the talking. But X has secrets – her feelings for a boy in her bio class and the notebook full of poems that she keeps under her bed. And a slam poetry club that will pull those secrets into the spotlight.
