I have not read any of the other books starring Carlota, but I didn't feel that I was missing important details while reading this one.
Carlota is a self-confident teenage girl who decides one day to research the broad subject of sex and write about it in a red diary. She discusses a variety of related topics with friends, family, and teachers - from sexual organs to hormones, pregnancy, I was sent this book to review it for SLJ. She discusses a variety of related topics with friends, family, and teachers - from sexual organs to hormones, pregnancy, and STDs - and details her findings within her journal.
Interspersed are narratives of her daily life, her own sexual experiences, and the high drama that ensues as she navigates the waters of teen romance. Lienas has written an engaging story that also serves as an excellent resource for young readers who may not know how or where else to find this information. The only real issue I had with the book was that I couldn't tell where it was located. It seemed that the story was taking place in Barcelona, Spain - Peninsular colloquialisms were used, and Carlota's boyfriend from the Netherlands came to town for a weekend swim meet.
Why would the author use Mexican statistics, wouldn't Spain have plenty of stats to include in her story? Was this an attempt to make the book more relevant to readers in the Western Hemisphere? In my opinion, it simply made the storyline confusing since I couldn't determine with any certainty where it was taking place. Yes, I'm one of those readers for whom setting is a big deal. Overall, a good read, with just the one incongruous detail of where exactly it's located. View 1 comment.
Oct 07, Alba added it. Last summer I read "El diari vermell de la Carlota". I enjoyed reading this book. I was expecting it to be boring but I learned a lot about sex.
I thought wouldn't finish this book but I read during two days. I recommended this book to girls interested in love, sex and fantasy. I think this book is very interesting for teenagers, is talk about sexual experiences! I recomend this book. I saw the flim and I read the book now.
I have been hearing a lot of comments about it and the film about it and this is why I want to read it! The truth is that very interesting, I was attacked pretty much unnoticed. It is not that bad, but i preferred the violet book about feminism- maybe it is not my kind of book because i like- i dont know but i did prefer the other much more. I want to introduce every pre-teen to them.
