” […] it’s a marvel of a YA novel. The book is so wise and accomplished that it is impossible not to be impressed.”
Anne Cathrine Straume, NRK
“In it’s writing, this is one of the best YA novels I have read for a long time. Ea’s voice is clear and original, yet oozes smart, but fed up 16 year old with a lot of time to think big thoughts.”
Marie Kleve, Dagbladet
Confessions of a fatty!
MISS is an excessive book filled with gallows humor and raw insights about being a person who marches to the beat of their own drum.
16 year old Ea sees herself as Miss Misfit. She's dropped out of school and fills her days with crocheting, writing her own autobiography, artistic projects - and eating.
And she hates everything that is Perfect.
"Why can't you be a bit more - normal?" asks her father. But Ea doesn't want to be normal. Her mother is terrified that her daughter will become mentally ill like Aunt Edith, who was an eccentric artist, enormously fat, quite insane and ended up taking her own life. So she sends Ea to therapy.
But Ea is so much more than a slightly overstuffed body. Perhaps she's actually the healthiest of them all?
