In the Olivieri house there is an exceptional host: Mo, a child from the planet Deneb. Boy or girl?
In the Olivieri house there is an exceptional host: Mo, a child from the planet Deneb. Boy or girl? The small difference between Terran and Denebians, in fact, is that they do not discover their sex before the age of twenty! But this small difference creates great difficulties: it seems that on earth, being male or female determines every aspect of life, even that of children … In this novel, able at the same time to make people laugh and make people think, Bianca Pitzorno shows how many contradictions and how many prejudices lie in the education of girls and children, and how often it is difficult to choose what you want to become when everyone tells you who you are.
