Summer with Justin

This summer, Frida is going to join Justin at his cabin, and she is looking forward to salt water, sun, ice and FUN! The words prison or prisoner are not even going to be mentioned, and she will definitely not be asking why Justin’s father is behind bars.

But not everything goes quite as smoothly as Frida had imagined – because when she discovers something that is absolutely not meant for her eyes, Frida doesn’t know whether she should pretend like nothing or shatter the idyll. Can she keep a secret from Justin?
