THE HISTORY OF MAGIC : ENSUENO
When the high school bell rings, Ester Bolaños escapes her small, border-town high school. But when she rides her beloved bike all the way home, Ester escapes reality. To feel alive, she imagines every fantastical way she could die. She'll take her chances against sharks, tanks, or flame-throwing Nazis anyday if it means avoiding the boring fates of her fellow students and family.
