Marcelo Sandoval hears music that nobody else can hear—part of an autism-like condition that no doctor has been able to identify. But his father has never fully believed in the music or Marcelo’s differences, and he challenges Marcelo to work in the mailroom of his law firm for the summer. There Marcelo meets the beautiful and surprising Jasmine, and things start to take a different turn. Praise for Francisco Stork: “[Stork’s writing is] as if John Updike had rewritten Gabriel Garcia Marquez.”—Publishers Weekly
