ANA BEATRIZ BRANDÃO

Ana Beatriz Brandão discovered the pleasure of telling stories at a very early age. Her literary debut was in 2014, during the 23rd São Paulo International Book Biennial, with the publication of THE SHADOW OF AN ANGEL (SOMBRA DE UM ANJO). She was then 14 years old, and her novel was listed as one of the event’s must-read books. In 2015 she did it again, but that time at the 17th Rio de Janeiro Book Biennial, with SOUL HUNTERS (CAÇADORES DE ALMAS).

During the event she lectured as a special guest, speaking to dozens of young readers. Now 17, Ana celebrates the success of her third book, THE BOY WITH A RED SCARF, released in 2016. Readers from around the country are thrilled by the dramatic story that brings up topics such as a rare incurable disease, bullying, violence against women and eating disorders, provoking debate and controversy on the internet.
