Young adults / Narrative / Spanish literature / Genre education
This is the story of Clara who, at the age of nine, practices synchronized swimming to overcome the harassment and bullying she has suffered and that transformed her life upside down.
Harassment exists even if it doesn't seem like it, even if no one sees it. It exists and it hurts, breaking the self-esteem of those who suffer it. And because sometimes it's difficult to identify it, harassments isolates the children who suffer it. That is why Clara's mother has not given her the importance she deserves and she has not taken it seriously. If only it seemed to be a simple children's story!
When do we have to pay attention to it? Where is the limit? How to maintain the weak balance between autonomy and protection? When does the problem start to be bigger than us?
This book can be used as an educational resource to discuss child bullying and harassment.
