I’m Sorry, Elina

Sofia Nordin

Elina and Evelina – you can tell by their names that they belong together. When they hang out they have so much fun. But is Elina really a good friend? She also hangs out with the popular crowd. And in front of the others Elina doesn’t show anyone that she is friends with Evelina.
Evelina is always the one who has to wait for Elina to call.

One day Evelina meets Cecilia and they become friends. Can Evelina handle saying no to Elina? And who is actually betraying whom?

A powerful story about how it feels to be betrayed by someone you like, and to belong but still be an outsider.
