0 Ratings
Country: Europe / Spain flag Spain
Description:
Kleine helden is een hartverwarmende roman over een volksbuurt in Madrid. Rijk en arm, jong en oud, singles en gezinnen, Spanjaarden en immigranten.

Elk op hun eigen manier beleven buurtgenoten bitterzoete momenten van onverwachte solidariteit, van verontwaardiging en woede maar ook van tederheid en doorzetten. Samen blazen ze hun buurt nieuw leven in. Een roman over durven opstaan, en over kleine daden die het verschil maken.
