      If Max could see tomorrow, he would know if he'd make Santa Maria's celebrated fútbol team and whether he'd ever meet his mother, who disappeared when he was a baby. He longs to know more about her, but Papá won't talk. So when Max uncovers a buried family secret -- involving an underground network of guardians who lead people fleeing a neighboring country to safety -- he decides to seek answers on his own.

      With a treasured compass, a mysterious stone rubbing, and Buelo's legend as his only guides, he sets out on a perilous quest to discover if he is true of heart and what the future holds.

      Three cousins. Two worlds. One secret.

      The legend goes that in the Baztán Valley, the gods coexisted in brotherhood, and the creatures of the day and night could live in harmony. But Gaueko, the terrible god of the night, started to torment the humans with his pack of wolves, and the goddess of the Earth, Mari, created the Moon and the Sun to protect them from the darkness. However, Gaueko’s thirst for power led him to concoct a plan to capture the Sun, and thus definitively establish his kingdom of shadows. Blinded with rage, Mari divided the world in two, and now nothing and no one can cross the line between them.

      Teo, Emma, and Ada don’t like each other at all, but they are cousins, and circumstances have led them to spend the summer together in their grandmother’s small village in Navarre. When one of them disappears and the others go searching, they discover a universe of wizards and gods, of irascible giants and beautiful women with raptor claws, in which the terrible god Gaueko has imposed darkness. A world in which they can only save themselves from the shadows if they stay united and discover their own magic.

In fact, what if you could excel at anything you put your mind to? You Are Awesome can help you do just that, inspiring and empowering young readers to find the confidence to realize their potential. It uses examples of successful people from Mozart to David Beckham to demonstrate that success really is earned rather than given, and that talent can be acquired.
