When everything you thought was true falls to pieces, all you can do is flee.
Bruna is an introverted, insecure girl from Barcelona with a love of order. On the day she takes her first standardized university admission test, her fear of failure gives her a panic attack. This drives her to make a life-changing decision: to go to England to work as an au pair. In Birmingham she lives through some experiences that are painful and others that are liberating, surrounds herself with people who fill her small world with intensity, learns to overcome obstacles, and begins to make her own decisions.
The novel speaks honestly of such important topics as mental health in adolescents, family relationships and friendships, sexual awakening, financial precariousness, and sexist violence.
The book also includes illustrations by the author in her unmistakable style, bringing to life some images in her first novel.
