… a gem of a sitcom.
Karen Frøsland Nystøyl, Periskop
(…) this should be required reading. Sara’s fear of zombies and axe murderers (…) is nicely balanced out by her well-rounded voice, fresh reflections, and effortless sense of humour.

Gets right to the heart of being a 12-year-old.
Jan Øyvind Helgesen and Molly Nagel, Nettavisen, 6/6 stars
The things 12-year-old Sara likes most in the world are:
– fairy lights
– her best friend Jonatan
The things she likes least in the world are:
– the dark
– girl drama
When Sara’s best friend Jonatan is diagnosed with diabetes, his parents want her to go with him on the scouts’ hiking trip. There’s only one problem: Sara is scared of the dark. Will Emmy, the new girl in class, beat her to the punch? Emmy already has a scout’s knife and a scout’s uniform, and she’s not afraid of anything. And who is sending Sara notes saying ‘Kys mik’? Sara isn’t interested in kissing anyone. Ever. Or is she?
