Rikka - For real and forever

Rikka - på ordentlig og forever

A book about being 10 years old, being between childhood and adolesence – and about NOT being in love. Everything changes the autumn when Rikka’s best friend, Lise, suddenly falls in love. Because Rikka isn’t in love. Absolutely not! She has more than enough on her plate with a dad who lives in another town, little siblings and stepparents – not to mention a new boy in the house next door. And when she falls out with Lise as well, nothing is the way it should be any more.
Rikka – For real and forever is a warm debut about friendship, love and feeling like an outsider.

Nominated for the 2019 Norwegian Writers for Children First Book Prize (“Trollkrittet”)
