¿Qué hay que tener para ser un héroe?
La primera novela Middle Grade de la autora de PAX.
Una emotiva oda a los introvertidos, a los soñadores y a los marginados.
El plan de verano de Ware es que lo dejen en paz para poder pasarlo en su mundo.
Pero sus padres tienen otros planes para él.
Por ejemplo, mandarlo a un campamento donde tendrá que relacionarse con chicos de su edad, como se supone que hacen los muchachos normales.
Pero Ware no es normal.
Afortunadamente para él, Jolene tampoco.
Esa chica reservada y su huerto en el solar de una iglesia en ruinas serán su salvación. Juntos, la terrenal Jolene y el soñador Ware construirán un castillo que se convertirá en su refugio.
Y ambos serán capaces de lo que sea para evitar que nada ni nadie les arrebate el único lugar del mundo real que realmente les importa.
Der Junge Peter und der Fuchs Pax: Sie waren einst unzertrennlich, heute leben sie weit voneinander entfernt. Doch die Erinnerung an den jeweils anderen lässt beide nicht los. Und so brechen sie auf: auf eine Reise durch die Wildnis, die ihre Wege abermals zueinander und näher zu sich selbst führt.
Ein Roman über Freundschaft und Liebe und die unverzichtbare Fähigkeit, auch nach großer Verletzung vergeben zu können.
Mit schwarz-weiß Illustrationen von Jon Klassen

From the author of the highly acclaimed, bestselling novel Pax comes a gorgeous and moving novel that is an ode to introverts, dreamers, and misfits everywhere, ideal for readers aged 9–12.
Ware can’t wait to spend summer ‘off in his own world’ and generally being left alone. But then his parents sign him up for dreaded Rec camp, where he must endure Meaningful Social Interaction and whatever activities so-called ‘normal’ kids do.
On his first day Ware meets Jolene, a tough, secretive girl planting a garden in the rubble of an abandoned church next to the camp. Soon Ware starts skipping Rec, creating a castle-like space of his own in the church lot.
Jolene scoffs, calling him a dreamer – he doesn’t live in the ‘real world’ like she does. As different as Ware and Jolene are, though, they have one thing in common: for them, the lot is a refuge. And when their sanctuary is threatened, Ware vows to save the lot.
But what does a hero look like in real life? And what can two misfit kids do?
