Robin trabaja en la radio como locutora en un programa de música muy seguido, tiene una amiga crazy, Rebe, una pasión inconfesable por las redes sociales y una vida sentimental caótica. Pero ese día se levanta con la sensación de que algo chispeante le va a suceder y no es porque vaya a entrevistar a Jesús y Daniel, una pareja de hermanos gemelos que han revolucionado el mundo teen con sus canciones, sino porque algo le dice que ese encuentro cambiará su vida. Lo que no sabe en ese momento es que los acompañará en su próxima gira de conciertos y que tal vez empiece a sentir algo más que interés por uno de ellos, pero ¿se puede amar a alguien a pesar de la diferencia de edad? Baby es una adolescente con dos pasiones: el ballet y la música. De hecho ha quedado con Laura, su mejor amiga, en una emisora del centro para ver de cerca a sus ídolos Dani y Jesús y participar como público. No sabe que su vida dará un giro cuando sean elegidas por los gemelos para acudir como invitadas a un concierto solo para prensa... Cristina Boscá ha escrito una novela imprescindible para princesas. Inocente y rebelde a partes iguales, Forever es una experiencia de lectura única.
Después del éxito de Se buscan princesas (Forever 1), Cristina Boscá regresa con la segunda parte del fan fiction sobre Gemeliers, una historia arrebatadora que llega directa al corazón. ¿Qué sucede cuando te ves obligado a abandonar todo lo que amas para empezar de cero? ¿Se pueden ignorar los dictados de tu corazón? ¿Es posible recuperar aquello que en otro tiempo te hizo volar?

En el trabajo le plantean la posibilidad de viajar a Londres y alejarse unos días del ruido que despierta cada uno de sus movimientos. Esa huida traerá consecuencias determinantes para su vida, pero ¿está segura de querer dejar la radio? Jesús está centrado en el nuevo disco que prepara con su hermano y en su actual relación; todo cambia cuando Robin se cruza en su camino. El pasado aparece para empañar su vida y recordarle que tendrá que luchar para conseguir la felicidad. Al contrario que su hermano, Dani se encuentra perdido sin Baby. Se refugia en las fiestas, en las chicas y en colegas que acaba de conocer, dejando de lado a Jesús. Una triste noticia de la que se enterará por casualidad pondrá en marcha su ingenio para recuperar al amor de su vida.

Despite her ongoing crush, Ruby is certain Niall barely knows she’s alive…until their flirty overnight flight makes him sit up and take notice. Not one for letting loose and breaking rules, recently divorced Niall would describe himself as hopeless when it comes to women. But even he knows outgoing California-girl Ruby is a breath of fresh air. Once she makes it her mission to help the sexy Brit loosen his tie, there’s no turning back. Thousands of miles from London, it’s easy for the lovers to play pretend. But when the trip is over, will the relationship they’ve built up fall down?
In 1950, after over fifty years of military occupation and colonial rule, the Nationalist Party of Puerto Rico staged an unsuccessful armed insurrection against the United States. Violence swept through the island: assassins were sent to kill President Harry Truman, gunfights roared in eight towns, police stations and post offices were burned down. In order to suppress this uprising, the US Army deployed thousands of troops and bombarded two towns, marking the first time in history that the US government bombed its own citizens. Nelson A. Denis tells this powerful story through the controversial life of Pedro Albizu Campos, who served as the president of the Nationalist Party. A lawyer, chemical engineer, and the first Puerto Rican to graduate from Harvard Law School, Albizu Campos was imprisoned for twenty-five years and died under mysterious circumstances. By tracing his life and death, Denis shows how the journey of Albizu Campos is part of a larger story of Puerto Rico and US colonialism. Through oral histories, personal interviews, eyewitness accounts, congressional testimony, and recently declassified FBI files, War Against All Puerto Ricans tells the story of a forgotten revolution and its context in Puerto Rico’s history, from the US invasion in 1898 to the modern-day struggle for self-determination. Denis provides an unflinching account of the gunfights, prison riots, political intrigue, FBI and CIA covert activity, and mass hysteria that accompanied this tumultuous period in Puerto Rican history.
