    • Synopsis
    • The first fiction novel by the best-selling author of My Name ain’t Johnny. The first popular government comes into power with the promise to free the country from the oppression from the rich. Luana Maxwell, the daughter of one of the richest men in the country, breaks up with her aristocratic family on the day of the election. Feeling overwhelmed, at 25 she leaves home taking only the clothes on her back, facing her tycoon father in twofold measure: giving up her heritage rights to his hotel chain and embarking on the “real world” next to his political opponents. Her connection to the progressive universe is a lawyer called Beto Leal, her Masters course teacher, by whom she is fascinated. Beto has just started an NGO and Luciana starts to work for him at the same time the organization signs a contract with the government - thanks to the advertiser Marivaldo Valadares, invisible operator for the new President’s party. As she watches money prospering abundantly in the hands of the defenders of the poor, Luana Maxwell starts to discover her new world as a progressive Alice in Wonderland: love, truth and solidarity dancing a hallucinating ballet with funds, votes and power. In this romance about the political life from the 21st century, the journalist Guilherme Fiuza unravels ideologies to display the tragic and comic characters that take part in the market of kindness.
