She’d still be friends with Hanna, even if they met shoplifting. Because stuff’s okay, mostly. And if He could fix the world, wouldn’t God have done it already?
Darkly comic, striking and compassionate, this is a portrait of small-town Norway, a community that sings with pain, humour, and a whole lot of nothingness, told through the eyes of a unique teenage girl.
