La Casita Azul by Sandra Comino

In a very small town in rural Argentina there is a magical house. The house has been vacant for as long as anyone can remember, but once a year, at midnight, the house turns blue, and 24 hours later it turns back to white again. Twelve-year-old Cintia lives with her father, an angry man who is sometimes violent. But Cintia finds comfort at her grandmother's house, where there is always delicious food and fascinating tales about the town and about Cintia's own family. Cintia is drawn to the little blue house even though both her father and grandmother forbid her to go there. And the town's mayor, who hopes to turn the house into a moneymaking tourist attraction, tries to prevent anyone from visiting the place without paying. As the time approaches for the annual transformation of the house, more problems and mysteries crop up, including rumors of buried treasure. The Little Blue House is a whimsical book that combines mystery, love stories, history, and politics to give an evocative portrait of rural Argentina.
