Something That Helps

Mona Høvring

Something That Helps is a stirring novel about a young girl’s sexual awakening, about inner strength and a turbulent family life, about friendship and loss.

Laura’s encounter with the older and erotically experienced Vivian Koller, and the friendship with the caring gardener Andreas, become crucial influences to her choices and development. Laura is both abruptly adult and childish, independent and vulnerable.

The clear, yet subdued language of the novel paints a multi-faceted and implacable portrait of a young woman who follows her own path towards destruction and reconciliation.
