This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Det er ikke nemt at starte et nyt kapitel i sit liv når man sidder fast i det gamle. Anja på 16 har svært ved at give slip på Nicoline, men da vennen Markus præsenterer hende for hans kusine Catherine, slår det straks gnister. Problemet er bare at Catherine bor i USA, og at Anjas mor er alt andet end begejstret for en lesbisk datter.
Jeg tænkte på Catherine. Hvis bare jeg kunne ringe til hende og høre hendes stemme … Hvis bare hun ville holde med mig og sige at vi var sammen om det her … Men det var vi ikke.
This book is currently only published in Danish!
I had the pleasure of reading her other book Historien om en Dreng first, and it was by far the better of the two.
I really didn’t like the main character in this book, she was god-awful but we won’t hold that against her! It’s the authors fault not her.
I don’t think it has the same magical romantic feeling as her other book did. This seemed lame and stretched to the max. It might be because this was her debut book. However, the whole plot just seems prolonged, and fake. The emotions seem forced it doesn’t come natural and we don’t get to think for ourselves.
It’s easy to see the author changed her ways of writing because the writing is so different from the two works. I’m sure a lot of people will like this book especially if you’re young, then you might not hate the drama surrounding the main character as much as I did.
