Magnhild Winsnes


Everything that is suddenly a secret.
This summer Hanna realises that she is lagging behind in just about everything: hobbies, friends, her body, boys, EVERYTHING. Through various experiences, encounters and discoveries Winsnes portrays the transition from child to teenager with a great deal of humour and seriousness. Winsnes´ illustrations follow the lense of a camera – she has the unique ability of telling a story with images.
Beautiful, humourous and sensitive story about secrets.
Shhh is a graphic novel for YA readers that stays with you

Winner of the Critics' Prize for Best Children's and YA Book 2017
