Blue Lagoon Deluxe

Marianne Kaurin

“Marianne Kaurin let eleven year old Ina and Vilmer be as childish as they want, when nobody sees them. The creativity blossoms. The play becomes more beautiful than reality. This is what I like.”

Ina has no plans for the summer holiday. All of a sudden, in front of the entire class she blurts out that she’s going to the Med for several weeks. She doesn’t know why she’s lying, and the lie keeps growing. A big problem is that the new boy in class has moved to Ina’s neighbourhood and he will easily find out that she is not on holiday at all.

Perhaps the best summer holiday is the one you thought would be the worst.
