Everything that is suddenly a secret.

This summer Hanna realises that she is lagging behind in just about everything: hobbies, friends, her body, boys, EVERYTHING. Through various experiences, encounters and discoveries Winsnes portrays the transition from child to teenager with a great deal of humour and seriousness. Winsnes´ illustrations follow the lense of a camera – she has the unique ability of telling a story with images.

Beautiful, humourous and sensitive story about secrets.

Shhh is a graphic novel for young readers that stays with you.
