When Lucas Giraut inherits the family company from a father who never really cared enough to get to know him, it comes with a lot of unanswered questions...and an archenemy: Lucas's mother, Fanny. An ambitious and ruthless entrepreneur, Fanny believes her son is as useless as his father, whose recent, mysterious death delights her. Determined to understand exactly what he's been bequeathed, Lucas follows clues found in a windowless secret apartment--and in his dreams--deep in Barcelona's underworld and far from the comforts of his home, a former ducal palace. Meanwhile, Valentina Parini--a precocious and troubled seventh-grader and the self-proclaimed Top European Expert on the Work of Stephen King--looks to Lucas, her upstairs neighbor and only friend, as she struggles with growing up.

Javier Calvo's Wonderful World is a haunting tale that entwines reality and fantasy, filled with scandalous behavior and dangerous crimes.
