Into the Deepest LakeTHE BOOK
En la laguna más profunda.
Las Tres Edades. 226.
Alexandra\\'s grandmother starts to forget everything and her family begins concealing and dressing up the truth because they think that the little girl will not understand what is happening since she is only twelve years old. Alexandra is amused at first by her grandmother\\'s transgressions of social norms, but she soon begins to wonder if this behaviour is a way to resist aging or maybe some kind of disease. As the grandmother\\'s condition worsens and she sinks deeper into her amnesia, the little girl decides not to let her forget who she was: she shows her grandmother pictures and tells her stories of her past life that she heard from her parents. The love that unites the granddaughter and the grandmother makes communication between them possible.IN BRIEF
