Book review: “Miedos y manias”

In Spanish only, 8-12yo.

Rita is a young girl who loves to collect things but she is also always scared. Scared of being too bad at playing games so the other children would not want to play with her anymore or too good and make the other kids jealous of her.

Her grandmother is her best friend and she is not afraid of anything, she does not care about hat other people say or think, she dresses in colourful clothes, let her long hair down…. and she keeps telling Rita to live her life and be happy.

Rita’s life changes the day her grandmother passes. Will she overcome her fears?

It is a sweet story about self-awareness, finding one’s place in the society and a sense of belonging.

First readers will love the story and the large letters easy to read.
