Love, sort of

Can you fall in love, just like that?

In the class next-door to Olivia’s there’s a boy called Niels. It seems Olivia sees him like wherever she looks: at the ping-pong table, on the stairs by the main entrance, and at the bike stands. It’s as if her eyes just ZOOM in on him all by themselves!

Is this what LOVE is? And if that’s what this is: WHAT ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO DO ABOUT IT?

A book exploding with charm that uses humour, warmth and insight – and takes first love very seriously indeed.

Critics gave the first two Olivia books a brilliant reception, and The Different Lives of Olivia was nominated for ARK’s Children’s Book Prize. Love, sort of can be read independently of the other Olivia books.

Heidi Linde

Heidi Linde (born 1973) is a genuinely talented writer, and writes a warm, yet vivid prose about characters that will touch your heart.

She has been a rising star since her debut novel Under the Table (2002) made it to the main selection in Norway’s major book club, but her big breakthrough came with her third novel, Yes, We Can! (2011).

She is also one of few plot driven women writers to traverse the gender gap; the reviewers obviously see her as a writer for both men and women (and compare her to giants like Nick Hornby and Jonathan Frantzen).
