Anina Yatay Salas is a ten-year-old girl who does not like her name. Each part is a palindrome — it reads the same forwards and backwards. One day, Anina and her arch-enemy Yisel get into a schoolyard skirmish, so the principal disciplines them with a weird punishment: they are both given a sealed black envelope which they are not allowed to open for a week. Anina’s efforts to understand the contents of the envelope turn into a journey to understand the world and her place in it.
