Out of a Lion’s Mouth takes place in Argentina. It’s the story of Tadeo, a teenager who suffers the daily submerged domestic violence of his family. When he meets Vera, he discovers that not every family is like his and a door opens to a new way of life. He can overcome fear and act differently facing who he really is and learning how to handle what seems his inevitable heritage.

His journey shows us the courage that is needed to find our own path and free ourselves from the chains that bind us to our kin. Out of a Lion’s Mouth deals with the most relevant themes in the coming-of-age years:change, the search for identity, first loves… Inés Garland creates a gripping narrative tension from the very first page.
