Literature / Marina

Marina is a 2001 novel by Spanish writer Carlos Ruiz Zafón. It was his last young adult novel.

In the 70's Spain, cynic Ordinary High-School Student Óscar Drai likes to explore the old parts of Barcelona at his boarding school's free time. His life is boring and anodine until in one of his walkouts he mets a dreamy girl named Marina, who soon involves them both in a mystery that has its roots in the city's glorious past. Through the story, Óscar and Marina will be forced to solve an enigma that will threaten their lives and whose nature few could imagine...
