Maya’s Notebook is a startling novel of suspense from New York Times bestselling author Isabel Allende.

 

This contemporary coming-of-age story centers upon Maya Vidal, a remarkable teenager abandoned by her parents. Maya grew up in a rambling old house in Berkeley with her grandmother Nini, whose formidable strength helped her build a new life after emigrating from Chile in 1973 with a young son, and her grandfather Popo, a gentle African-American astronomer.

Editorial reviews (5 reviews)


Despite the observations about the number of young people lost to street violence, crime and slavery, or because of them, the driving force of this novel is ultimately resilience – the power of love and acceptance to face down terrible things.

Maya's Notebook is lovely and readable, heartwrenching and smart, as one would expect from an Allende novel.

"Maya's Notebook" exerts a raw and genuine power.
