For adventure lovers: seven summer proposals

Antonio Iturbe, author of adults with an important imprint in the children's sector (El inspector Cito), debuts in the youth field with a dystopia with many components of science fiction and a budding romance that does not quite materialize (will there be a second part, or more?) It is worth going to live on Mars or other parts of the solar system that have been colonized after the collapse of the Earth. Farah, a young police officer, does not follow the rules, but solves cases in a way that robots cannot.

He is 28 years old and it is his first novel, but he has given the bell. F. Steadman, author of this story starring unicorns (without glitter), has entered through the front door: translations in 46 countries and the acquisition by Sony of the rights to shoot a film.

The plot stars Skandar Smith, a boy who has always wanted to ride a unicorn and is lucky enough to be chosen to raise one and be its rider.

They don't have superpowers, but their brains are pure dynamite. It is the group of kids recruited by MI6, the British intelligence service, to save the world. They are the protagonists of the saga with which the American of Italian origin James Ponti has conquered the young public of half the world. Young spies whose peculiarity is that they come from different nationalities, which gives the saga a very interesting air of internationality and globality.

Although the Finnish author deals with a really tough subject, adventure is guaranteed. Because Alfred (9 years old), discovers that no matter how abandoned one feels –an absent mother and a father constantly traveling for work–, there is always someone who listens.

That someone here is Amanda, the person who will make Alfred someone stronger and with an indestructible circle of friends. With the invention of the radio as a backdrop.

The king of escape books, Ivan Tapia, could not miss it. Here, two brothers must find the memories of their grandfather with only a flashlight (magic, of course), a camera and a lot of ingenuity. A thick white fog is engulfing the old man's memories in the purest Ende style (The Neverending Story) and the kids will have to jump from page to page solving puzzles. By the way, be patient with the sorcerer who has a somewhat peculiar way of speaking.

Leo Kai Lim had never made a promise to a dead man, but he did. Because he wanted (he needed) to know. What was his name doing in Rochester Cathedral alongside the brave soldiers who fought in World War II? "Special" people never appeared in the history books, as his father said they were. But yes they were. That ancestor of his corroborated it and incited him to an adventure of self-knowledge and great courage.

Berta doesn't like fantasies, amusement parks or Halloween parties. Nothing that smacks of a lie, but she takes movies, books and theater out of the equation. Not so the escape rooms. So when her best friend (and something else of hers) asks her to attend a very illustrative one in architecture, she has no choice but to go. Getting on a motorcycle has been a mistake; she does not realize that she has left the game and has fallen into another very real and dangerous one through the streets of Barcelona (in Catalan).
