El Brazalete Mágico, by Margarita Pérez García
Alondra lives in her family's zoo, deep in the mountains of El Ávila national park in Venezuela. After the sudden death of her grandmother, Alondra is left alone with her father. She feels out of place, struggling to deal with her family heritage and her fear of the animals that slither across the land in silence. But what if her darkest nightmares become a source of strength? What if her worst fears become her strongest ally? Who is she really? How far can she go?
