Siri Broch Johansen
I’m a skier

"I have learned something about women today. I have learned that if there is something wrong, it doesn’t get better by itself. And if you believe it is best not to say anything about it, you’re probably wrong. I have learned that if you are wounded, and a thing goes so wrong that you start to cry in front of the woman whom hurt you, then it may be just that, which makes it all right again."

This book is Siri Broch Johansen’s second youth novel. Jovsset, a young boy, tells you his life the way he sees it. He goes through the motions as an eldest child does when younger siblings arrive. We get to discover his likes, dislikes, love, friendship, passion, struggles and victories, alongside him. In short: unique view on a young boy’s life.
