Young Adult Novel (Vol. I in a series)
Barsakh. Emilie, Samuel and the Gran Canary
Barsakh. Emilie, Samuel og Gran Canaria
Like most teenagers, Emilie is concerned about her appearance; clothes, body and calories. But Emilie takes it even further. She works out every day and eats as little as possible. Every meal is a fight. Now Emilie and her family are going to spend the holidays in the Gran Canary. After lunch she sets out for a jog, while only a few kilometers away a boatful of African refugees washes ashore. Soon their paths will cross.
For Emilie, the encounter with the refugees – their hunger and impoverishment – is a wake-up call and a turning point in her own life.
