Marte Spurkland
The class

This book follows a group of students through their last year of high school. Seven youths between childhood and adulthood, between feigned security and fumbling experimentation, many of them between two cultures, often uncertain about both their own and others' relation ships with sex and gender. With warmth, insight and curiosity, one of the country's best journalists depicts a group of youth that provides a cross section of being 18 years old in Norway in 2017.
