RESUMEN: Glory no sabe qué hacer con su vida. Marcada por el suicidio de su madre, atrapada en una amistad que se desintegra, a punto de graduarse pero sin planes en perspectiva, alberga un temor secreto: seguir los pasos de su madre, como predicen las estadísticas. Hasta una extraña noche en que Glory adquiere la capacidad de asomarse al futuro. Cada vez que mira a una persona, ve a sus antepasados y a sus descendientes. Ve acontecimientos del pasado y del porvenir. Ve el infinito. Y descubre que la humanidad se dirige a un destino aterrador. ¿Qué harias tú? ¿Intentarías cambiar el curso del mañana, transformarlo, darle la vuelta aunque pensases que el futuro no cuenta contigo? Entre la crítica social y el realismo magico una fascinante historia que recorre los tortuosos caminos de la pérdida y el destino.
SUMMARY: In this masterpiece about freedom, feminism, and destiny, Printz Honor author A.S. King tells the epic story of a girl coping with devastating loss at long last--a girl who has no idea that the future needs her, and that the present needs her even more. Graduating from high school is a time of limitless possibilities--but not for Glory, who has no plan for what's next. Her mother committed suicide when Glory was only four years old, and she's never stopped wondering if she will eventually go the same way...until a transformative night when she begins to experience an astonishing new power to see a person's infinite past and future. From ancient ancestors to many generations forward, Glory is bombarded with visions--and what she sees ahead of her is terrifying: A tyrannical new leader raises an army. Women's rights disappear. A violent second civil war breaks out. And young girls vanish daily, sold off or interned in camps. Glory makes it her mission to record everything she sees, hoping her notes will somehow make a difference. She may not see a future for herself, but she'll do anything to make sure this one doesn't come to pass.
