Todo lo que olvidé
Roberto was born old and wise, spitting names of authors surprising his parents. He had to start the adventure of living without knowing if he started from the right point.
A second chance can be torture if you don’t know what you’ve been given.
This is the journey of a boy who will have to answer many questions from the reason … or not.
With the excuse of this adventure, the author reviews the life of a young man from a different perspective: childhood, school, the future plan. Sometimes from a fun perspective, sometimes from an illuminating approach. Identity is the subject and it leads to important questions: who am I? What do I like to do? Who do I need? Who do I love?
