“Hints of the Norwegian setting come through in this translation that sheds light on socio-economic disparities. The resolution is satisfyingly happy. Absorbing relationship drama with a convincing protagonist.” KIRKUS
Ina has no plans for the summer. Suddenly, she finds herself lying in front of the entire class, telling them she is going to the Mediterranean for three weeks. And then the lie keeps growing and growing via social media. The only problem is that the new boy in class has moved to Ina’s neighbourhood and he will easily find out that she is not in the Mediterranean. Perhaps the best summer holiday is the one you thought would be the worst?
A warm, believable story about friendship, first love, and social media from Norwegian author Marianne Kaurin.
