One Friend Too Few
En venn for lite
Sara and Helene are best friends. Forever. But after the summer holidays, everything is suddenly different. Helene has been to the US and Disneyland, while Sara has spent her summer fishing and playing cards at the family cabin. They are miles apart even though they live next door to each other.
When Sara’s parents also reveal that they have a secret and that the family will be moving house, Sara realises she’s in the process of losing absolutely everything that is good. Sara needs to make a plan to get her life back. But is her plan cunning enough to turn the situation around?
Linde Hagerup is back with a stand-alone follow-up to One Brother Too Many. This is also a children’s novel that is easy to read and enjoy.
