Minus MeBook - 2015
During a diving competition Linda discovers that she has a rare heart condition and is told that her only hope of surviving is a heart transplant. Sensitive, introspective and intelligent, Linda refuses to be wrapped up in cotton wool, despite her parent's wishes. Determined to experience everything a thirteen-year-old girl should, Linda starts to work her way through a list of all the things she and her best friend wish to do: have a first kiss, go to a pop concert, travel without parents... But as Linda starts to tick these off, a mysterious emo-like boy called Njal appears - and always at the most unexpected moments. And he is happy to accompany her on daring escapades, particularly those that her timid best friend refuses to go on with her. But is Njal good, or bad? And why is he the only one that Linda can share her fears with? Minus Me is a gripping, addictive novel - written with heart-stopping emotional honesty - from one of Norway's most acclaimed young adult writers.
