Summary

«Seguramente todos somos valientes y no lo sabemos hasta que la vida nos pone a prueba.»

Que la vida va en serio Gina lo descubre de golpe y sin previo aviso: la adolescencia todavía está cerca y la edad adulta, con todos sus compromisos, parece lejana, pero una mañana se despierta con una sensación rara en el cuerpo y, tras meses de pruebas, le cae encima un diagnóstico médico tan grave como inesperado.

Este es el punto de partida de Gina, una novela llena de encanto, tierna y divertida, que narra en primera persona las tribulaciones de esta treintañera poco convencional que nos cuenta su vida como si nos susurrara un secreto apasionante al oído.

La voz de Gina es inteligente, divertida y cálida, desacomplejada y directa, muy auténtica, y nos habla de amor y de sexo, de amistades inquebrantables, de enfermedad y de dolor, del deseo desesperado de ser madre, de personas con las que se cruza, del porqué de las cosas y del sentido de la vida.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

“Surely we are all brave, but don’t really know it until life puts us to the test.”
 
Gina discovers that life is no game suddenly, with a bang, and without warning: her adolescence is still close and adulthood, with all its commitments, seems distant. But one morning she wakes up with a strange sensation in the body and, after months of tests, she is faced with a serious and unexpected medical diagnosis.
 
This is the novel’s starting point, a tender, fun, and charming one; a novel that narrates in first person the trials and tribulations of this unusual thirty-year-old woman that tells her story as if whispering an exciting secret in our ears.
 
Gina's voice is intelligent, funny and warm, uncompleted and direct, very authentic, and she speaks of love and sex, of unwavering friendships, of illness and pain, of the desperate desire to be a mother, of people with whom she crosses paths, the reason for things, and the meaning of life.
