The Right to Fly - Sofia Gallo
This new novel in the Extra series narrates the romantic and political life of a young girl at the beginning of the 1970s.
The novel The Right to Fly grew from the re-elaboration of real experiences which were seen and experienced by the girl in her youth.
Elena is just over 18 years old, she has a boyfriend who is actively involved in politics and who makes her participate in all this, a sister who is younger than her and is attracted by the more frivolous aspects of life and a younger brother whom she is very fond of. Protests, strikes, cyclostyles and demonstrations combine with the girl’s first love experiences, the search for approval from her parents who are too distant and her attempt to find her place in life and to build her own future.
Sofia Gallo is a prolific children’s writer who only recently started to successfully write also for teenagers.
