Zlata's Diary: A Child's Life in Sarajevo

by Zlata Filipovic Christina Pribichevich-Zoric

This journal entry represents Zlata's insightful writing and the translators skill: "Thursday, October 14, 1993 Dear Mimmy, Those lunatics up in the hills must have read what I wrote about the shooting yesterday. They want to show me that they're still around. They went SHOOTING today. Shells fell around the market-place, and we don't know how Grandma and Grand-dad are. Poor things. These lunatics haven't just stolen from us our childhood, they've stolen from my grandparents and other old people a peaceful old age. They're not letting them live out the rest of their lives in peace. They had to ruin that too. I didn't have classes or music school today. They sent us home, so I'll spend the whole day at home reading, playing the piano, spending some time with Nejra and Haris. I was supposed to go to Mirna's today, but they spoiled that for me. I didn't tell you, Mimmy, that you're about to go out into the world. You're going to be published abroad. I allowed it, so you could tell the world what I wrote to you. I wrote to you about the war, about myself and Sarajevo in the war, and the world wants to know about it. I wrote what I felt, saw and heard, and now people outside of Sarajevo are going to know it. Have a good journey into the world. Your Zlata" A fine book for a book report. Teens sensitive to cruelty will want to share this diary with parents. This was a horrific piece of history.

Ziggy, Stardust and Me

by James Brandon

The year is 1973. The Watergate hearings are in full swing. The Vietnam War is still raging. And homosexuality is still officially considered a mental illness. <P><P> In the midst of these trying times is sixteen-year-old Jonathan Collins, a bullied, anxious, asthmatic kid, who aside from an alcoholic father and his sympathetic neighbor and friend Starla, is completely alone. <P><P>To cope, Jonathan escapes to the safe haven of his imagination, where his hero David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and dead relatives, including his mother, guide him through the rough terrain of his life.

Web is everything Jonathan wishes he could be: fearless, fearsome and, most importantly, not ashamed of being gay. <p><p> Jonathan doesn't want to like brooding Web, who has secrets all his own. Jonathan wants nothing more than to be "fixed" once and for all. But he's drawn to Web anyway. Web is the first person in the real world to see Jonathan completely and think he's perfect. Web is a kind of escape Jonathan has never known. For the first time in his life, he may finally feel free enough to love and accept himself as he is. <p> A poignant coming-of-age tale, Ziggy, Stardust and Me heralds the arrival of a stunning and important new voice in YA.

Las zapatillas de ballet

by Noel Streatfeild

Un verdadero clásico de la literatura juvenil inglesa, Las zapatillas de ballet ha estado disponible en las librerías del Reino Unido desde su publicación en 1936. En 2007 se convirtió en un telefilme para la BBC protagonizado por Emma Watson. Apadrinadas por un anciano paleontólogo que lleva años viajando por el mundo, Pauline, Petrova y Posy han crecido al cuidado de una tutora y de una niñera. Estamos en Londres, en los años treinta. Pauline sueña con ser actriz, Petrova lee cuanto puede sobre coches, aviones y motores, y Posy podría pasarse el día entero bailando, pero la ausencia prolongada de su benefactor dificulta gravemente la situación económica de las niñas. Por eso, cuando se presenta la ocasión de formarse y trabajar como actrices profesionales, las tres hermanas no dejarán escapar la oportunidad. Con su talento, esfuerzo e ilusión lograrán costear los gastos familiares, conseguirán triunfos inesperados, aprenderán a valorar la generosidad, la independencia, y, sobre todo, a desconfiar del éxito como única meta.

Zafiro (Rubí #Volumen 2)

by Kerstin Gier

Cruza las fronteras del tiempo y encuentra el verdadero amor. Sigue la grandiosa aventura de Gideon y Gwen: un torbellino de sentimientos que arrastra a los protagonistas a través de los siglos. Gwen vive en una nube... ¡con Gideon!, aunque sabe bien que el amor entre dos viajeros en el tiempo puede deparar sorpresas traicioneras. Por suerte, tiene muy buenos consejeros: su mejor amiga, Leslie, su compinche, James el fantasma, y Xemerius, una gárgola que se mete en bastantes líos. Además, Gwen y Gideon tienen importantes problemas de los que ocuparse... Por ejemplo, salvar el mundo. O aprender a bailar un minué (algo nada fácil). Sin embargo, ambos deberán entender que el amor debe pasar por delante de lo demás, sobre todo cuando caigan en las redes del conde de Saint Germain... Todo había empezado con aquel beso. Gideon de Villiers me había besado a mí: Gwendolyn Sheperd. Naturalmente, debería haberme preguntado por qué se le habría ocurrido aquella idea de una forma tan repentina y en unas circunstancias tan extrañas, escondidos en un confesionario y todavía sin aliento tras una persecución de película por medio Londres. Pero el hecho era que en aquel momento yo no pensaba absolutamente en nada, aparte quizá de que no quería que el beso acabara nunca. Por eso tampoco fui del todo consciente del tirón que sentí en el vientre ni me di cuenta de que entre tanto habíamos vuelto a saltar en el tiempo... Reseña:«Kerstin debe de haber lanzado algún tipo de magia entre sus páginas. La historia es alucinante... ¡Quién fuera Gwen para pasar dos horas con Gideon en un sofá! ¡A SOLAS! Sin lugar a dudas, la trilogía ES UN IMÁN del que no te podrás separar. ¡Imprescindible en tu estantería!»Eva Rubio, administradora de JUVENIL ROMÁNTICA

Zac y Mia

by A. J. Betts

Valiente y poco convencional, describe el fuerte apego a la vida que surge cuando se padece una enfermedad grave. Si bien el ambiente frío y aséptico de una clínica es el último lugar donde una pareja de adolescentes esperaría iniciar una relación significativa, a veces el azar nos sorprende con encuentros fortuitos que marcan nuestro destino. Convaleciente de un trasplante de médula, Zac lleva semanas solo y aburrido en el hospital cuando en la habitación contigua ingresan a Mia, una impetuosa chica de su edad. A los golpecitos en el tabique del principio les sigue el intercambio de notas por medio de las enfermeras y, finalmente, en el silencio de la noche, la comunicación a través de Facebook. Paulatinamente, una amistad surgida de la necesidad da paso a una atracción muy especial que, sin embargo, se verá expuesta a una dura prueba cuando más adelante la realidad cotidiana interponga unos obstáculos con los que Zac y Miano contaban. Narrada con un fresco sentido del humor, autenticidad y delicadeza, Zac y Mia es una historia excepcional sobre dos chicos cuyo prometedor futuro se tambalea bajo sus pies. Una novela íntima y conmovedora que mantiene al lector en vilo hasta el final. La crítica ha dicho...«El poder curativo de la amistad, el amor y la familia hacen que este relato divertido y filosófico sobre la enfermedad en la adolescencia resulte sobresaliente.»Kirkus Reviews «Con una estructura elegante y un estilo y lenguaje carentes de toda afectación, los personajes de esta novela quedan grabados en la memoria del lector y permanecen en ella durante largo tiempo.»Jurado del Premio Ethel Turner «Betts retrata el cáncer como algo duro, que da miedo, pero que se puede derrotar -o, por lo menos, soportar- si uno no se enfrenta a él en solitario. Sus protagonistas, un chico que se aferra a la vida y una chica que se da cuenta de que nopuede evitar que su vida cambie, tienen una enorme fuerza.»Publishers Weekly «Cuando empieces este libro, no podrás dejar de leerlo.»The Hoopla
