leído en francés.
no me acuerdo bien de la trama, lo volveré a leer!
I gave it 3 stars because I didn't enjoy it, but it's a good book. Let's say that reading a book about children with mental illness is not easy, specially when it's written by Howard Buten, who has a sensitive way of writin.
"Vidi dentro di me le maschere della commedia e della tragedia che nascondono il volto di tutti, e mi venne voglia di strapparle via per vedere cosa c'era sotto, ma c'erano solo altre maschere."
