Ingelin Røssland
Hand grenade apple

Anja lives a humdrum life in the bosom of her family, a life which largely consists in helping her grandmother with her dressmaking and knocking about with her rather dull friend Arild. But the time comes for her to start junior college, forcing her to leave home and move into a bed-sitter in town. Here she meets Malin, who is a bit of a tearaway and is reputed, along with her gang, to have trashed someone's home after a party. Moreover, Malin has a brother who is currently serving a prison sentence for drug dealing. Without warning, Anja finds her life turned completely upside-down. “A highly accomplished book,” wrote the reviewer in Dag og Tid.
