The Grammar of Love (La gramática del amor)

The grammar of love is studied with the heart.

Irene is a nice, intelligent girl who loves to read. After her parent’s divorce she is sent to a boarding school to study.

At only 16 years old, Irene is going through a very rough patch. Her luck seems to turn around when Liam, the most handsome boy in boarding school, notices her. She can’t believe it. Her, the girl who spends more time behind a book rather than think about boys, like her roommate, Martha. Irene feels on cloud nine and can’t stop thinking about him. Despite the short time that she’s known Liam, she is sure she’s fallen in love with him. So much so, that she writes him a poem declaring her feelings to him. However, that afternoon nothing goes as she had planned and she discovers that her prince charming was texting ten other girls at the same time. To make matters worse, Liam shows the poem to everyone, causingIrene to feel humiliated and she quickly becomes the center of all the teasing.

After this first heartbreak, she confides in her teacher for help. Professor Peter Hughes  offers her private lessons in “the Grammar of Love”, a subject in which they will study seven of the most famous authors within the genre of romance in order to help Irene reflect, understand and define the greatest of all feelings.

Irene can’t help but fall madly in love with her teacher. At the same time, a silent suitor secretly aspires to win her heart: Marcelo, her athletic training partner and close friend. Feelings will also arise towards Josh, the school librarian who lends her books, causing serious problems with her classmate Martha.

Flooding feelings, unspeakable adventures, and books that leave a mark on her soul, Irene can finally get to know herself and, above all, understand love.
