Narrated By: Gina Jaramillo, Fa Orozco, Gilberta Mendoza Salazar
Listen to your ears and you will know the secrets of the most talented and fearless women, curious, rebellious and enterprising in Mexico, who dared to break the mold. Disobeying can be a good idea. Being orderly is always nice and powerful, of course, but getting out of the huacal makes things interesting when the mandates are boring, when they don’t let us move at ease, especially when they harm our soul. In those cases you have to invent your own opportunities to make discoveries and shine like a diamond. The women in this book have gathered to tell you how they did it, how much they searched until they got away with it.
Because curiosity does not kill the cat. Females, small and large, always end up finding ways to break through, even if the path is full of pebbles.

However, he is protected by the goddess of wisdom, Athena. Meanwhile, on his land, Ithaca Island, his faithful wife, Penelope, and his son Telemachus are waiting for him, who will go looking for news of him. But the hateful suitors of Penelope have also settled in Ithaca, who want to convince her that her husband is dead and that they spend the day in the hero’s palace eating and drinking. Although nothing is known for certain, it seems that around the 8th century BC, a Greek minstrel named Homer, who is said to be blind, composed this story, the Odyssey, which tells of the adventures that Ulysses lived since he left Troy finished the war, until it arrived, twenty years later, at his homeland, Ithaca. The Odyssey is a wonderful poem, which was composed many, many years ago: almost three thousand!

His face makes him different and he just wants to be one more. He always walks looking at the ground, his head down, and with his bangs trying in vain to hide his face, but even so, he is the object of furtive glances, muffled whispers and elbows of astonishment. August leaves little. Her life passes between the cozy walls of her house, between the company of her family, her dog Daisy, and the incredible stories of Star Wars. This year everything will change, because this year he will go to school for the first time. There you will learn the most important lesson of your life, the one that is not taught in classrooms or in textbooks: grow in adversity, accept yourself as you are, smile at the gray days, and know that, in the end, you will always find a friendly hand.
