Summary

Novela de ficción histórica, ganadora del premio Newbery Honor y bestseller del New York Times

Libro ganador del premio Junior Library Guild Gold Selection 2022

La vida no es como las películas, y Tortuga sabe lo suficiente como para no esperar un final feliz. Después de todo, es 1935, la Gran Depresión. El trabajo, el dinero y hasta los sueños escasean. Así que cuando Tortuga tiene que irse a vivir a Cayo Hueso, Florida, con unos parientes que nunca ha conocido, ni siquiera derrama una lágrima. ¡Florida es un lugar cálido y extraño, lleno de primos, secretos familiares e incluso tesoros enterrados! Casi sin darse cuenta, Tortuga sale del caparazón que se ha pasado la vida construyendo y descubre un mundo mucho más emocionante que cualquier éxito de taquilla de Hollywood.
 
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A New York Times bestseller

Winner of the Junior Library Guild Gold Selection Award 2022

In Jennifer L. Holm's New York Times bestselling, Newbery Honor winning middle grade historical fiction novel, life isn't like the movies. But then again, 11-year-old Turtle is no Shirley Temple. She's smart and tough and has seen enough of the world not to expect a Hollywood ending. After all, it's 1935 and jobs and money and sometimes even dreams are scarce. So, when Turtle's mama gets a job housekeeping for a lady who doesn't like kids, Turtle says goodbye without a tear and heads off to Key West, Florida to live with relatives she's never met.
 
Florida's like nothing Turtle's ever seen before though. It's hot and strange, full of rag tag boy cousins, family secrets, scams, and even buried pirate treasure! Before she knows what's happened, Turtle finds herself coming out of the shell she's spent her life building, and as she does, her world opens up in the most unexpected ways. Filled with adventure, humor and heart, Turtle in Paradise is an instant classic both boys and girls with love.
