Amanda is looking forward to starting school after the summer. Mainly because of Adam, who she is madly in love with, but also because she is going to be school buddy to a cute little first grader. It all becomes a bit difficult when instead she is told to look after Lars, the new boy in class with Downs syndrome. Amanda feels pressured: Can she be close friend to Lars and still be popular among the cool kids in class? And how can she get Adam’s attention? Amanda gets twirled up in something she really doesn’t want to be a part of: She starts sharing mean pictures of Lars. She betrays Lars and herself, and disappoints everyone. How can she get back on her feet, make things up with Lars and fix her broken reputation? It is a long and humiliating road filled with trials and selfabasement, told with large amounts of humor.
