Ellinor (Ellinor Trilology)

Katarina von Bredow

A new trilogy for middle grade by Katarina von Bredow

Katarina von Bredow writes about relationships with feeling. We get to know Ellinor, Leo and Victor during sixth grade, a year in which much changes and everything is put to the test. The upcoming books in the series are titled Victor and Leo.


Ellinor/ Ellinor (2018)
On Ellinor’s birthday, a new boy starts in her class. His name is Victor and he is handsome and funny and takes up space instantly. He looks right at Ellinor when the class sings happy birthday to her. Her cheeks grow hot and she gets butterflies in her stomach every time he smiles at her. But Ellinor is not the only one affected by Victor. Meja tosses her long, shiny hair around when he’s nearby, and Leo seems grumpy because Victor gets all the attention. Ellinor grows tired of navigating around everybody else’s feelings. She needs to put her foot down and show what she wants. But how is she going to show Victor how she really feels?

Leo/ Leo (2018)
Leo’s homelife is messy. His big brother Markus quits school and parties and their parents don’t get along. Leo hides in his room with his headphones on. Atschool he is often by himself. There’s only one person he really wants to be with: Ellinor. She has been his best friend since first grade. But when Viktor started their class everything changed. He’s like a rockstar everyone wants to be with, and even if he can be with anyone he has chosen Ellinor. She doesn’t seem to see what Leo noticed right away: there’s something strange about Viktor. The stories he tell doesn’t add up. But when Leo tries to warn Ellinor she gets mad. In the middle of all this there’s a sudden disaster. Life hits paus and the things that recently were so important is now rather insignificant. But in the darkness people show their unexpected sides. Help and comfort can come from the one you least expect.

Viktor/ Viktor (2019)
No one knows the truth about Viktor’s home life and that’s the way it’s going to stay if he has anything to say about it. But how is he going to get through the summer when you have to hang out at each other’s houses instead of at school? To Ellinor he said that his mom has cancer. He had to come up with something to explain why Ellinor couldn’t come in. Mom needs peace and quiet to get better, he said. What else was he supposed to do? Does he have to break up with Ellinor in order not to be found out?
