Fourteen-year-olds Ana and Mario can’t stand each other yet find themselves on the same school field trip to Rome. As they visit the Sistine Chapel and observe the famed frescoes on its ceiling, Ana hears a cry for help from the Cumaean Sibyl, an ancient and mysterious prophetess cursed to live for a thousand years. Later that night, Ana sneaks out of her hotel room and onto the streets of the Italian capital, determined to undertake her rescue mission. Mario, however, suspects that something is amiss and sets out after her. Their adventure—which takes them back in time to imperial Rome—may be more than what they bargained for. An engrossing read for young adults, this fast-paced story features themes of friendship and a wonder for ancient mysteries.

Ana y Mario tienen 14 años y no se soportan, pero igual les toca participar en el mismo viaje escolar a Roma. Mientras visitan la Capilla Sixtina y observan los famosos frescos de su techo, Ana recibe una llamada de socorro de la sibila de Cumas, una misteriosa adivina de los tiempos antiguos condenada a envejecer durante mil años. Esa noche, Ana se escapa del hotel y se interna entre las calles de la capital italiana, decidida a emprender un rescate. Mario, sin embargo, sospecha que sucede algo y la sigue. Su aventura—la cual los llevará en un viaje a través del tiempo hasta la Roma imperial—podría ser más de lo que se esperaban. Esta trepidante historia es una lectura apasionante para los adolescentes y trata los temas de la amistad y el interés por los misterios antiguos.
