Otherwise I'm Not a Human Being

Mathilde is fourteen. She doesn't want to go to school. Mom doesn't understand what's going on – even when Mathilde ends up in the hospital. She doesn't have any friends other than a dog named Eddi, and Xiu, her friend she plays with online. But Xiu also has his/her own problems. Otherwise, I'm not a Person is about being bullied, but still standing up for yourself, for others, and for the world. And about the fact that most things are the grown ups' fault.
