    A brave and simple story, written in the alternating voices of its two heroines.

    The last thing either Jana (13) or Louise (17) is looking for on this hot and boring summer is a friend of totally the wrong age. But then one day, they abandon their responsibilities and irritating families, and head off in a ‘borrowed’ car for a day by the lake. Their adventure is simple — beer, ice-cream, swimming, singing — but the friendship it forges between them turns out to be profound. When Jana experiences loss, it is only Louise’s tender and funny postcards that can haul her out of depression — right out of her bedroom window and off on another adventure. 

    Tamara Bach was born in Limburg an der Lahn in 1976. She made her breakthrough with her first novel, Marsmädchen (The Girl From Mars), which was published in 2003 and received several book awards. Since then she has published many other novels, among them Was vom Sommer übrig ist (Wherever It Is Summer), which won the German-French Prize for Youth Literature, a White Raven by the International Youth Library and the Catholic Children’s Youth Book Prize in 2013. Tamara lives in Berlin.
