Starr es una chica de dieciséis años que vive entre dos mundos: el barrio pobre de gente negra donde nació, y su escuela situada en un elegante distrito residencial blanco. El difícil equilibrio entre ambos se hace añicos cuando ella se convierte en testigo de la muerte a tiros de su mejor amigo, Khalil, a manos de un policía. A partir de ese momento, todo lo que Starr diga acerca de la aterradora noche que cambió su vida podrá ser usado de excusa por unos y como arma por otros. Y lo peor de todo es que ambos bandos esperan que dé un paso en falso para poner fin a su vida. Inspirado por el movimiento Black Lives Matter, el debut de Angie Thomas sobre una chica normal sometida a tan difíciles circunstancias aborda cuestiones de racismo y violencia policial con inteligencia, corazón y una honestidad inquebrantable. "Angie Thomas ha escrito una novela asombrosa, brillante y desgarradora que será recordada como un clásico de nuestro tiempo." John Green, autor de Bajo la misma estrella

Mucho antes de que existieran talleres y cursos de escritura creativa, los aspirantes a escritores aprendían a escribir leyendo a sus predecesores y a sus contemporáneos. Ésta es la propuesta en la que profundiza la novelista y profesora de literatura Francine Prose: volver a emplear la lectura atenta y consciente de los grandes escritores para descubrir sus magistrales mecanismos literarios como técnica de aprendizaje para el escritor en ciernes; en definitiva, aprender a leer como lo hace un escritor. Prose nos invita así a un viaje guiado que desentraña muchas de las herramientas y trucos del oficio empleados por escritores tan perdurables como Dostoievski, Flaubert, Kafka, Austen, Dickens, Woolf o Chéjov. Asimismo, sus clarificadores comentarios sobre las decisiones narrativas adoptadas por los escritores se detienen, entre otros, en temas como: la importancia de la elección de palabras en Paul Bowles; la construcción de magníficas frases largas en Philip Roth y de igualmente efectivas frases cortas en Raymond Carver; la calculada y sabia partición en párrafos en Isaak Babel; la brillante creación de personajes en George Elliot; los medidos diálogos generadores de trama por sí mismos en John Le Carré; el uso del detalle revelador en Flannery O’Connor; las sutilezas narrativas en Nabokov o el magistral empleo de los gestos para crear personajes en James Joyce y Katherine Mansfield. Además de abrirnos un basto horizonte para empezar a escribir ficción con eficacia narrativa, Prose nos enseña también a mejorar nuestra agudeza lectora misma, y no sólo a leer sino a escuchar a los demás en la vida real, un añadido del todo generoso en los tiempos que corren, y que se suma a su objetivo principal, que es ofrecer unas verdaderas lecciones privadas sobre el arte de la literatura de ficción.
