La esfera dorada


Lorena pasará sus vacaciones de fin de año en la casa de campo de sus abuelos, pero no está contenta. No dispondrá de su teléfono celular y no podrá acceder al Internet, pues sus padres consideran ya alarmante su dependencia de esos medios. El aburrimiento de los primeros días se interrumpe cuando una madrugada contempla una extraña luz blanca que se mueve a gran velocidad por una loma cercana. Esa aparición se transformará en una apasionante aventura.

Lorena will spend her year-end vacations at her grandparents' country house, but she is not happy. She will not have her cell phone and will not be able to access the Internet, as her parents already consider her dependence on these means alarming. The boredom of the first days is interrupted when one morning she sees a strange white light moving at high speed over a nearby hill. That appearance will be transformed into an exciting adventure.

Teacher Comment(s):

"This book lends to comparing a city life with rural or technology vs pre-technology or ¨old ways¨ vs new ones.  I enjoyed how the Gold Sphere legend that was passed down for years was portrayed."
