Powerful graphic novel about losing yourself

Jenny lives with her mum and her half-brother Odd. Her best friend Ann-Sofi has started smoking and hanging out with older boys. Jenny feels most at home when she’s birdwatching in the woods. When Ann-Sofi starts to reject her, Jenny makes one foolish decision after another. Finally she ends up in a situation with an older boy that she can’t find a way out of. Who is she after that? And how can she find herself again?

Through her writing and illustrations, Trude Tjensvold has created a powerful and challenging novel about assault and setting boundaries.

Red Volvo combines a traditional book with a graphic novel. It is aimed at both confident readers and those who need a little longer to read.
