Ida Takes Charge

Ida's greatest fear is terror. This doesn't get any better when she meets Aksel at University; a lone wolf with dubious interest in weapons. Aksel has become an outsider, and Ida needs to take drastic measures: How can she save Axel – and the world? Perhaps equally important: How can she save herself?

Ida Takes Charge is a dark and funny debut novel about overcoming fear and finding your calling in life.

NOMINATED TO THE TARJEI VESAAS DEBUT PRIZE 2019.
