Synopsis

Synopsis

Desmond likes to disappear, blend into the background, and hide in the cleverest of places. But when a new student named Gloria arrives at his school, Desmond finds himself noticed for the first time. Can Gloria help Desmond get used to the life in the spotlight?
 
Anna Alter’s charming story is an original and reassuring take on overcoming shyness.
