Just Like Kerstin

Helena Hedlund

There are two things Kerstin wishes for most of all. That they will get a white Christmas and that the baby in her mum’s belly won’t be born on Christmas Eve. But their yard is ugly and muddy, and her mum’s belly looks like it will soon burst. And how will her wishes come true if she doesn’t even believe in Santa or God? When Kerstin gets invited to a pajama party by a girl in her class, Gunnar is not allowed to come just because he is a boy. Why is it like that? And why does everyone have an opinion about Kerstin being best friends with Gunnar?

Just like Kerstin is the last and concluding part of the award-winning series about Kerstin.

 

“With a playful language and from an accurate child’s perspective, Helena Hedlund’s Kerstin depicts everyday yet vital problems. It’s so easy to get entangled with lies. The Best Thing About Kerstin is a debut that glitters like gold, both in the details and as a whole.”
The jury’s motivation
