The fears, the worries, and the uncertainties of a teenager who faces the swings of her life.
Bad grades plus an absurd hairstyle means the call for a family meeting. The solution is only one: a week at granpa Gianni in his mountain hut. Luce doesn’t know if this is a bad or good solution. Finally, she went away alone for the first time in her life. A twelve-years old girl with an old backpack, her beloved herbarium, and a brand new haircut. The yellow house is her grandfather’s mountain hut, amidst the wood and the snow. That’s the place of the stories and tales which she listents open-mouthed. This time, however, the story is bordeline between fiction and reality. It seems that an enormous and dangerous creature is wandering around Bosco Alto and Luce has the hard evidence of his presence. In the meantime her grandfather is every day more and more weird and misterious. Luce had come here to get away and rejoin her once-close granpa, but now everything is different, all has changed, and she is again, as always, out of sync, out of sorts.
A novel written and illustrated by one of the most italian talented cartoonist.
A tactful story unveiling the many worlds – none of them better than the other – where our emotions can inhabit.
