Anton and Other Accidents
Anton og andre uhell
Gudrun Skretting’s debut novel is a funny and heartwarming story about family, friendship, love and misunderstandings.
12 year old Anton gets some information he could easily have lived without.
He is an accident – a result of broken rubber. Anton needs to find a way to restore balance in the universe and create a meaning out of his existence. His idea is to do something selfless that is really worthwhile. With help from his best friend, Ine, he decides to find a girlfriend for his dad. That is not as simple as it sounds.
