Clap When You Land meets On the Come Up in this heart-gripping story about navigating first love and overcoming grief through the power of music.
AarÃ³n Medrano has been haunted by the onstage persona of his favorite DJ ever since his mother passed away. He seems to know all of AarÃ³nâ€™s deepest fears, like how his brain doesnâ€™t work the way it should and thatâ€™s why his brother and father seem to be pushing him away. He thinks his ticket out is a scholarship to the prestigious Acadia School of Music. That is, if he can avoid blowing his audition.
Mia Villanueva has a haunting of her own and itâ€™s the only family heirloom her parents left her: doubt. Itâ€™s the reason she canâ€™t overcome her stage fright or believe that her music is worth making. Even though her trumpet teacher tells her she has a gift, sheâ€™s not sure if sheâ€™ll ever figure out how to use it or if sheâ€™s even deserving of it in the first place.
When AarÃ³n and Mia cross paths, AarÃ³n sees a chance to get close to the girl heâ€™s had a crush on for years and to finally feel connected to someone since losing his mother. Mia sees a chance to hold herself accountable by making them both face their fears, and hopefully make their dreams come true. But soon theyâ€™ll realize thereâ€™s something much scarier than getting up on stageâ€”falling in love with a broken heart.
