O Caderno Vermelho da Rapariga Karateca
Ana Pessoa · Bernardo P. Carvalho
THE KARATE GIRL'S RED NOTEBOOK
N is not a baby, she is a Karate girl. (N is the second letter of her name.) N is 14, almost 15, and her biggest dreams are to get a black belt and to kiss Raul. N likes to write, but she prefers to fight with Raul. (Writing is a bit boring).
This is not a diary. It has no lock, no secrets.
(Though yes, it does contain a few secrets.) It also has a will of its own, moving pages, words like 'diarrhea' and 'romantic' and characters like the wicked witch who wants to learn to be good and the fly who did not know who it was.
This is the karate girl’s red notebook. N's favourite object, it is a pet, a character, a real person. (What is the truth anyway?)
The Karate Girl’s Red Notebook is Ana Pessoa's first book, and it won the most recent edition of the Branquinho da Fonseca - Expresso / Gulbenkian prize.
With this release, Planeta Tangerina starts its 'Two Steps and a Leap' collection intended for slightly more grown up readers.
