Publisher Comments:

The year is 2013 and Natalia, her brother Airon, and her mother have just landed in London, where Natalia will be appearing on the most watched reality-television program, One Minute of Glory. As they prepare to get on the train that will take them to the city center, however, Natalia and Airon become separated from their mother. They wait for hours for someone to come for them before setting out on their own to find their mother. Along the way, they meet a number of unique—and sometimes threatening—characters, but theyre accompanied at every step by Shao Li, Natalias imaginary friend, who is a source of courage and strength.

 El año es 2013 y Natalia, su hermano Airon y su madre han aterrizado en Londres, adonde Natalia aparecerá en el programa de televisión de más audiencia, Un minuto de gloria. Sin embargo, al ir a montar en el metro que los llevará al centro de la ciudad, se separan de su madre. Esperan por horas a que alguien regrese por ellos antes de finalmente ir en busca de su madre. A lo largo de su viaje se conseguirán con un número de personajes únicos—y a veces hasta amenazantes—pero están acompañados a cada rato por Shao Li, la amiga ausente de Natalia, quien es una fuente de coraje y fortaleza.
