Description

La última sirena, merecedora del Premio Boolino 2018, es una historia fascinante sobre la amistad, la magia del mar, y todo lo que un verano puede cambiar nuestras vidas.

Clara es una niña de once años cuya frenética vida entre escuelas de élite, múltiples extraescolares y fines de semana siempre planificados se corta en seco debido a una grave crisis familiar. Al llegar el verano, Clara se ve obligada a renunciar a los campamentos a los que van sus amigas y a pasar el verano entero con sus tíos abuelos, a quienes apenas conoce, en una pequeña isla del Mediterráneo en la que nunca pasa nada.

Pero poco a poco Clara se da cuenta que ni sus tíos ni la isla en la que residen son tan apacibles y amables como parecen. ¿Qué extraña enfermedad hace que su tía Esmeralda, una bellísima mujer postrada en silla de ruedas, languidezca día a día? ¿Por qué el tío Juan se muestra cada día más hostil con Clara? ¿De dónde provienen los cantos que se oyen cada noche y...¿ quién es la misteriosa joven que nada al amanecer en la playa?.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The Last Mermaid, winner of the Boolino 2018 award is a fascinating story about friendship, the sea's magic, and how a summer can change in our lives.

Clara is an eleven-year-old girl whose frantic life between her elite school, multiple after-school activities, and packed weekends are cut short due to a serious family crisis. When summer comes, Clara is forced to give up the camp that her friends go to, and spend the whole summer with her great-uncles, whom she barely knows, on a small Mediterranean island where nothing ever happens.

Little by little, Clara realizes that neither her uncles nor the island where they live are as peaceful and as friendly as they seem. What strange illness is making her aunt Esmeralda, a beautiful woman in a wheelchair, weaken and fade away more and more each day? Why does uncle Juan appear increasingly hostile to Clara? Where do the songs that she hears every night come from? . . . And, who is the mysterious young woman who swims at dawn on the beach?
