  • "Josie woont in een arme wijk van New Orleans. Ze droomt ervan om te gaan studeren aan een prestigieuze universiteit. Maar ze raakt betrokken bij een onderzoek naar de moord op een rijke zakenman. Vanaf ca. 15 jaar."
  • "Josie Moraine, la protagonista de esta historia, sueña con un mundo muy distinto al que la rodea. Inmersa en los bulliciosos bajos fondos del Nueva Orleans de la década de 1950, ansía escapar y labrarse un futuro mejor. Vive en un entorno muy particular, entre el burdel en el que trabaja su madre y la librería donde trabaja ella y en cuya trastienda duerme, en el colorista Barrio Francés. Josie encuentra en los libros el refugio donde albergar sus sueños, y la lectura se convierte para ella en la puerta a un mundo diferente. Además, los personajes tan variopintos que la acompañan, como Willie, la resuelta dueña del burdel, dura pero con un corazón de oro, Cokie, el jovial chofer mulato, o Patrick, su mejor amigo e hijo del propietario de la librería, hacen de esta novela una historia que, ante todo, infunde optimismo e ilusión por la vida."

  • "New Orleans. Josie ha diciassette anni, ma non sa cosa sia un abbraccio. Non ha mai conosciuto l'affetto di una carezza, non ha mai ascoltato il suono di una voce dolce. Sua madre è una prostituta e l'ha sempre trattata come un'estranea. Eppure, da sempre, Josie custodisce un segreto, un luogo speciale tutto suo: la stanza sopra la libreria del quartiere, dove lavora. Lì si rifugia nei pochi momenti liberi delle sue giornate. Lì, tra le pagine di Charles Dickens, Jane Austen e Francis Scott Fitzgerald, immagina un futuro lontano. Quando, un giorno, nel negozio entra Hearne, un uomo misterioso con la passione per le poesie di Keats, Josie per la prima volta crede che il sogno di una nuova vita potrebbe diventare realtà. Hearne è diverso da tutti. Hearne si preoccupa per lei, le chiede come sta, le offre parole di conforto. È come il padre che non ha mai avuto. Ma, quando tutto sembra possibile, anche scappare da New Orleans, Hearne viene ucciso. La vita ha deciso di mettere ancora una volta alla prova Josie. Non solo Hearne non c'è più, ma a venire accusata della sua scomparsa è la madre della ragazza. Adesso Josie deve scegliere. Scegliere tra la donna che non le ha mai dato amore, e la fuga. Scegliere tra il cuore e la speranza. Gettare la paura alle spalle e spiccare il volo. Perché a volte si può volare anche con un'ala ferita."
