Rikka - For Real and Forever

A book about being 10 years old, between being children and youth – and NOT being in love. Everything changes that autumn when Rikka's best friend suddenly falls in love. Because Rikka isn't in love. Absolutely not! She has more than enough on her plate with a dad who lives in another town, little siblings and stepparents – not to mention a new boy in the house next door. And when she falls out with Lise as well, nothing is the way it should be any more. Maiken Nylund makes her writing debut with a book that should hit everyone sho is in between being children and youth.
