Casa 12 / House 12 (2007)

“My bedroom window opens onto a roof. That’s where I run to eat chocolate in secret, cry, write letters to God, keep rolly-pollies in a shoebox full of soil. I also like to stay there thinking that when the Moon comes to Brazil, the Sun goes to Japan.”

This book is a diary of a little girl who observes and reports with grace the world around her at the end of the 1950s in São Paulo (Brazil). Casa 12, where Leticia was actually born, is the center of her universe and the stage for the emotions, discoveries and first sorrows of a child who, from an early age, loved to write and used to sell poems to her neighbors and family.
