A poignant and encouraging novel about the initiation of a boy into adulthood. Stefano is not just a novel about immigration, it is regarded as a classic, it is a must in juvenile Spanish literature.
Pay attention: Stefano is an unusual example of the compatibility between suspense and critical realism, between simple and exquisite language. Peter Braulein. Bulletin Jugend & Literatur und Medien.
