…a moving novel about the complexities of the youthful soul.

El diario de Bruno

Written by Rogelio Guedea
Published by HarperCollins Publishers

Bruno is no longer a child and is not yet a teenager, but he is in the most difficult time of his entire life. He was born in Mexico and lives in New Zealand, the most remote country in the world. Bruno is a great pessimist. While his life passes between doubts and premonitions, he writes all his thoughts in his journal, trying to understand himself. Until he meets Maya, a nice Chilean girl of the same age and begins to think about her day and night, but does not dare to tell her what he feels. Everything changes drastically when Bruno suffers from a health problem and a “ball” appears on his wrist, which appears to be a tumor. Bruno’s diary shares that immense knot of emotions of love and uncertainty that come with puberty, in a moving novel about the complexities of the youthful soul.
