Two new novels: El Entierro by Adriana Ramirez & La espía huérfana by Andrew Snider

El Entierro is a short Spanish novel written for third/fourth year Spanish students. It has a glossary in the back, arranged by chapters, so the reader can easily access those words that are new and specific to the story. In Latin America there are lots of myths and legends that are part of our oral traditions. This story is inspired by some of them. “Amalia Mosquera es una joven enfermera que acaba de alquilar una casa vieja en el pueblo. Rápidamente se da cuenta que ella no es la única que vive en la casa. Hay alguien más, que la sigue a todos lados y no la deja en paz. ¿Podrá ella vivir en esa casa por mucho tiempo? O ¿Se cansará y se irá rápido, como lo han hecho todos los que han vivido antes allí?

After the tragic death of her parents, Violeta struggles to adjust to her new life in San Diego. Her life takes an intriguing turn when she receives a mysterious letter warning that she is in grave danger. When she learns that one of the world’s most wanted criminals has escaped from prison and is looking for her, it will take more than courage to survive. La espía huérfana was written for Spanish language learners and contains a glossary of over 250 words to help keep the text compelling and comprehensible. Recommended for students level 2 and above. It was written with a TPRS © classroom setting in mind.
