Why are you coming back every summer: a must read

Why you came back every summer, an important book to understand the different ways to approach such a complex issue as child abuse.

Art and Literature

 Why are you coming back every summer  is an almost fundamental book for the times that run. In it, the author,   Belén López Peiró  , narrates, with luxury of detail, but without ever falling into the low blow,  the abuses he suffered during his adolescence at the hands of his uncle, the husband of his mother,  police commissioner in the province of Buenos Aires .

Unclassifiable book, which could be said to be an  autobiography, but also an essay, a novel or a sort of manifest , is narrated from different points of view, changing narrator in each case. Sometimes the victim narrates in the first person, others in second referring to the abuser or in third counting “from the outside” the hell she had to live. Another great success is the  change of record : if the case warrants it may be profoundly intimate, but it can also be distant to exemplify the neglect of the judicial or formal system by reproducing the words of the police lexicon. This multiplicity of voices and records make the book  a great fresco of the situations that unfortunately many young people live daily in our country. 

 Why are you coming back every summer : a necessary reading

Beyond its inherent literary quality, which is indisputable, López Peiró's first book (edited by   Madreselva  , an editorial worth taking into account) is a text that should be available to adolescent girls. It is likely to help some girl going through something similar to have more tools to talk, to encourage herself to tell what she is suffering. In fact,   Thelma Fardin  herself  said that her reading was very important when it comes to encouraging her to tell what ended up.oacute; being a national scandal: the abuse she suffered at the hands of Juan Darthés when they were on tour while she was still a minor teenager.

In short, an important book as reading, as a record and as a way of understanding the different ways in which such a complex topic can be addressed.  I mean, a must-have book.
