Soledad, de ocho años, teme volver a su solitaria casa todos los días después de la escuela. Se inventa una hermana imaginaria para hacerle compañía al principio, pero de la imaginación y la curiosidad de dos buenos amigos del barrio surge una solución mucho mejor. El premiado poeta y escritor Rigoberto González ha elaborado una delicada y conmovedora historia sobre la soledad de una niña latchkey y el ingenio vivo de sus amigos para lidiar con esta preocupación tan común.

Eight-year-old Soledad dreads coming home to her lonely house every day after school. She invents an imaginary sister to keep her company at first, but a much better solution emerges from the imagination and curiosity of two good friends from the neighborhood. Prize-winning poet and writer Rigoberto González has crafted a delicate and touching tale about a latchkey child's loneliness and her friends' lively ingenuity in dealing with this all too common concern.
