But Carter's ghosts are ever present, and soon Ilka finds herself torn between saving him and saving her own future.With a foreword by Stanley Crouch, Her First American is the poignant story of an immigrant experience in a country of endless possibilities and of a rich and breathtaking love that is doomed from the start.

Una conmovedora y luminosa novela sobre la poco probable y, aun así, inquebrantable amistad entre un matón de instituto y…un chico con síndrome de Down Una adivinanza no tiene sentido la primera vez que la oyes. La amistad entre Dane y Billy D. tampoco: ¿qué tienen en común el matón del instituto y un chico con síndrome de Down? En el caso de Billy y Dane, tienen un mismo problema: Dane no sabe quién es su padre, y Billy está decidido a reencontrarse con el suyo. Su amistad puede llevarlos a descubrir la verdad... ¿pero qué descubrirán sobre sí mismos? Enternecedora y lúcida, Cuando irrumpe lo extraordinario es una inolvidable historia sobre las segundas oportunidades, la amistad y el amor: una celebración de las personas y sucesos impensados que dan un vuelco a nuestras vidas. La crítica ha dicho... «La historia de dos personajes imperfectos y memorables.» Booklist «Dane no es unhéroe ni Billy D. una víctima inocente: Lange es demasiado buena como para eso. Ambos chicos son personas de carne y hueso con la capacidad de divertir, encandilar y enfurecer al lector, cuyas emociones oscilan deliciosamente entre la adoración y las ganas de chocarles la cabeza de uno contra la del otro de pura exasperación.» The Guardian

Una mirada intensa sobre el juego de la atracción en los institutos. Sobre las normas de la popularidad y el…precio que se paga por cumplirlas. Ocurre todos los años: una lista se expone por toda la escuela, se pega en todos los periódicos murales y casilleros, y es, simplemente, imposible de ignorar. Todo el mundo conoce el juego. En la lista figuran los nombres de las chicas que han sido elegidas como las más bonitas y las más feas de cada año. ¿Elegidas por quién? Nadie sabe. ¿Con qué propósito? A nadie le importa. Lo único crucial es saber quién figura en la lista y si tu nombre aparece en ella. Ésta es la historia de ocho chicas, pues todas ellas han aparecido en la lista de ese año. Cada una de ellas tiene una historia detrás absolutamente diferente, cada quien con una personalidad distinta, una voz propia y miedos, sueños y deseos diferentes, por lo tanto todas tienen su particular reacción a esta experiencia, que lasconfronta con su identidad, autoestima y el juicio de los demás. Las más bonitas o las más feas, da igual, una vez que apareces en la lista, nada vuelve a ser lo mismo. Lo que han dicho otros autores: "Me quedé despierta toda la noche leyendo Una lista peligrosa, una novela del todo absorbente sobre el sistema de castas del bachillerato, sobre la belleza, la juventud, la amistad y las etiquetas. Todos los personajes son divertidos, agudos, románticos, conmovedores y veraces, sin importar qué tan 'lindos' o 'feos' sean". - Melissa de la Cruz, autora de Blue Bloods http://www.megustaleer.com.mx/
