NB: This is NOT a mushy love story!!!
SPRING. 12-year-old Ida is back, ready for new adventures, drawing and writing it all down in her top-secret diary. And, once again, Helen and Ida are best friends. However, something feels different, although Ida can’t pinpoint what it is. Also, she cannot stop thinking about Simon. And the fact that she’ll soon be starting high school, the school Simon goes to, and Ida has never EVER been kissed! And how do you go about being an experienced kisser, if you have absolutely no experience? Something needs to be done. Then one day a new boy moves in next door, and everyone just LOVES him. Everyone except Ida…
This sequel is humorous and serious, heart-warming and convincing. After the success of Hey, it’s me!, Nina E. Grøntvedt has delivered again. Absolutely Unkissed went straight into the bestseller list for children’s fiction in Norway, when published in September 2012.
