Being young

Translator

Mišo Grundler

The youth is exciting, beautiful and fun, but it can also be difficult and moody. It’s a turning point of life. You are situated at a crossroads of childhood and adulthood. Together but alone. Your parents are side-lined and don’t understand anything no matter who much they try.

Norwegian author and actress Linn Skåber talked to young people about their life, acne, feelings, peace and longing. The material she gathered she used for writing little texts about big topics – all from the perspective of young people.

The stories are fun and easy-to-read, but Linn Skåber’s seriousness still permeates the text.

The book is wonderfully illustrated by Lisa Aisato and is a perfect gift for your loved ones.
