The girl, the heart and the house (La niña, el corazón y la casa)

Short novel juvenile | Editorial Sudamericana, 2011 | 92 pages
La niña, el corazón y la casa (The Girl, The Heart and The House) tells the story of a girl who manages to give the family heritage, her mother’s and grandmother’s abandonment stories, a new turn through the moving relation she creates with her brother, a boy with Down’s Syndrome. A poetic and taciturn writing, considered by the critics Andruetto’s hallmark.

The reader will find a narrative voice where one can recognize the Saer by Glosa and where very moving characters are built with a lot of subtletyRevista Ñ

A book that cuts through your heartMarina Colasanti

María Teresa Andruetto, who knows very well children and juvenile literature, offers us a story woven with small and precious details as well as with a clever use of repetition, creating an atmosphere able to catch and seduce readers from all ages, like a sweet and soothing lullaby”.
