What readers say:
“[…] a relevant all age novel about courage and standing up, about looking beyong the length of one’s nose. It shakes you up and wkes your sympathy: This novel has touched me and convinced me with its unagitated simplicity. Absolute must-read, not only for young people. (Hadassa Levy, Fragmentage)
” […] Jennifer Benkau put so much research and thought into this novel, it is mora than impressive. In case you#re looking for a sweet love story in front of a serious background, I need to disappoint you. I have cried more than one tear and gritted my teeth to suppress my grwoing anger. It’s rare that a book touches me so deeply. (Krisi Schoellkopf, Wurm sucht Buch)
