SANDRA: “It’s a very emotional and sentimental book. I like it because it makes us think about discrimination of people with problems or phisycal dificulties.” CARMEN: “ I think the book is a bit boring althought it has had taught me to value people with mental deficiencies. A thing that I had never done before.” VERÓNICA: “ I think that this book is a set of examples of real life, which introduces us to the refletion about the importance we give things. It’s also a realist novel about physics disabilies. It is very humanist because it reflects how human beings can help.”
ÁFRICA: “ I think it’s a very interesting book. It relates us a nice story full of dificulties and it makes us show our respect to human beings.” LETICIA: “ I like the book very much, but sometimes it’s a bit boring. The book can help you to know, to acept and not to treat diferently people because they were born with a mental deficiency. With it I realize that people are very insensitive with other people. And many of us think that a person with a mental deficiency is a problem. With it I have learnt to be more human.”
