Seven short stories for young adults

Freddy drives into the winter darkness and picks up a woman who needs a lift.
Lissi dozes in the front seat as the car and her holiday plans are suddenly turned upside down.
Maria is making her way into the desert, with butterflies in her stomach and a pressing problem.
Tellef has finally got a moped, but still has a long way to go to be accepted by the gang.
Sander loses his sense of reality, and is forced to put his anxiety to the test.
Stine wants to learn how to handle a car – while at the same time handling everything else.
And a girl will travel further than she’s ever gone before.
Everyone will leave something behind them. And they’re all moving towards something new and unknown.

Strong human encounters and relationships are key to several of the stories. Other people are often catalysts for development and inner journeys, and the other way around –[...] – or stronger connections to people who are already in one’s life.
