The Sound of H

Magela Baudoin

NOVEL. SANTILLANA, 2015. 160 PAGES

NATIONAL PRIZE FOR THE NOVEL IN 2014 (BOLIVIA)

This story is a desperate cry. It is the cry of H.

One day, Mar and Rafaela, teenagers about to leave school, become friends under unusual circumstances. H's cry is a cry against intolerance that challenges machismo and questions politically incorrect ideas. It explores the progressive left-wing families in Bolivia who seemed to make a difference in the past but who, oddly, still have a cleaner in their service. And it undermines traditional patriarchs.

The Sound of H is the story of a search for an identity. Rafaela knows very well what she wants out of life, although almost everyone is against her. Mar, in contrast, doesn't know what to do with her future.
In this fabulous book, Magela Baudoin shows us that the worst truths are the ones that are kept quiet.
