A Spanish edition of THE GUARDIANA OF THE NOTEBOOK, the inspiring story of a mother and her daughter who have been denied entry at the US border and have to find a refugee in charge of "the notebook", an unofficial record of all those waiting to cross into the United States.

Before, the sun bathed the patio. The neighbors' curls danced through the streets. Now, there is only silence. Dad's gone, and we're not safe here anymore. We're leaving too.

In this powerful and beautifully illustrated book, Noemí and her mother flee their home in Mexico and travel to the United States border. There, they look for “the guardian of the notebook,” a refugee who writes down the names of the families seeking asylum, and they add their names to the list. As days turn into weeks, and hope fades, the girl searches for the goodness around her, and within herself. One day, when the name of “the guardian of the notebook” is called to cross, Noemí and her mother—out of the generosity of her hearts—are chosen to take her place.
