About this item

Una historia emotiva e inspiradora que llegará a todos aquellos que alguna vez han sentido que no encajaban.«Todos somos genios. Pero si juzgas a un pez por su habilidad para trepar a los árboles, pasará toda su vida sintiéndose un estúpido.» Albert Einstein, disléxicoAlly es una maestra en el arte del engaño. Cada vez que llega a un nuevo colegio, esconde su incapacidad de leer creando inteligentes pero extrañas distracciones a su alrededor. Tiene miedo de pedir ayuda. Y, además,¿es que alguien puede curar la estupidez? Pero su nuevo profesor ha visto el brillo y la creatividad oculta tras su aire problemático. Con su ayuda, Ally aprenderá que la dislexia no es algo de lo que avergonzarse, mientras se abre ante ella un mundo lleno de posibilidades.Porque cada uno de nosotros llevamos un océano dentro, y las grandes mentes no suelen pensar como lo hacen los demás.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONThe author of the beloved One for the Murphys gives readers an emotionally-charged, uplifting novel that will speak to anyone who's ever thought there was something wrong with them because they didn't fit in."Everybody is smart in different ways. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid."Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so ****** herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. As her confidence grows, Ally feels free to be herself and the world starts opening up with possibilities. She discovers that there's a lot more to her—and to everyone—than a label, and that great minds don't always think alike.
