New York Times bestselling author Jen Mann has written a funny and heartwarming story for fans of Meg Cabot and Rainbow Rowell. My name is Plum Parrish, I’m fourteen, and I’m pretty sure I’m invisible. Not like super power invisible, more like loser invisible. There’s a big difference. I live with my dad who doesn’t realize that a job transfer to Kansas is not a promotion; my s’mother who thinks journaling, cheesy inspo slogans, and mani-pedis can solve my problems; and my twin brother Pax who is so perfect I’m convinced we share absolutely no DNA. Unfortunately, I’m not invisible to them. I love them, but they embarrass me on the daily. Honestly, they would probably say the same about me, because I’m weird, sarcastic, and just a lot. My best friend is ghosting me, and my other best friend is a teacher. The move to Kansas is my opportunity to reinvent myself and embrace my a lot-ness (yes, that is too a word). Sure, I will literally have to battle a live bat, a Queen Bee, and my unruly hair, but I will find my tribe and own who I am.

Una novela apasionante, hipnótica y plena de misterio, por la autora de La habitación. Irlanda, 1840. En un pequeño pueblo se corre la voz de que una niña de once años, hija de una humilde familia de granjeros, lleva cuatro meses sin comer. Anna O'Donnell es inteligente, devota y muy discreta. En un ambiente extremadamente católico, todos la creen una santa. El caso ha llegado a la prensa, y recibe a diario visitas que dejan a la familia limosnas y regalos. Elizabeth Lib Wright, una joven enfermera inglesa, es contratada por un comité de ciudadanos del pueblo para vigilar a la niña durante dos semanas, con el objeto de otorgar credibilidad al «milagro». Se turnará en esa vigilancia con una monja, la hermana Michael. Lib no se fía de la eficacia de la religiosa, pero es casi imposible controlarla a ella también, además de a la niña y los padres de esta. William Byrne es un periodista al que envían allí para cubrir el caso, y Liz acaba refiriéndole algunas de sus observaciones. Está convencida de que se trata de un fraude, pero resolver el misterio no resultará sencillo. Una novela emotiva, inteligente, apasionada, que conjuga el suspense psicológico con una historia de amor que se enfrenta al mal. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION By the New York Times bestselling author of Room: A small Irish village is mystified by what appears to be a miracle but may actually be murder in this "fine, fact-based, old-school page-turner" (Stephen King). In this masterpiece by Emma Donoghue, an English nurse brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle -- a girl said to have survived without food for months -- soon finds herself fighting to save the child's life. Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale's Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl. Written with all the propulsive tension that made Room a huge bestseller, THE WONDER works beautifully on many levels--a tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.
