It's not always easy to become the person you want to be.

When Linda discovers that she has a life-threatening heart condition, she refuses to be wrapped in cotton wool. Determined to experience everything a thirteen-year-old girl should, she 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 her parents... But when a strange and mysterious boy called Zak appears, Linda's life takes an unexpected turn - suddenly she is experiencing things she never dreamed possible, and every moment is precious.

Minus Me is a gripping, addictive novel - written with heart-stopping emotional honesty - from one of Norway's most acclaimed young adult writers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The ending will have you sniffing... the stripped-back style contrasts cleverly with the emotionally charged subject.'

* Daily Mail *

'The story is moving, and Linda is a realistic 13-year-old, complete with flaws.'

* School Library Journal *

'A gripping book about finding yourself in the world...Minus Me has all the makings of becoming a phenomenon teens talk about'

* Norwegian Arts *

'The book's voice is its strongest asset: Linda's reactions to her situation ring true, and as the book addresses themes of life and culpability with wisdom and humor, philosophical lines intertwine easily with moments of intense emotion'

* Publishers Weekly *
