The River

The River is a quiet and beautifully illustrated novel about the big and small things that make life difficult for teenage Helena. She feels like she’s just washing away, like the water beneath the ice in the river she sees each day on her way to school. Helena wishes she could take up more space, that she could say what she thinks and feels. That she could manage to comfort Dad, or dare to talk to Andreas in the other class. Then one spring day, the ice starts to break – and something dramatic happens.

For readers aged 12-15.
