“… a strong and sympathetic novel…”
Maya Troberg Djuve, Dagbladet 5/6 stars
“Taran L. Bjørnstad has written a sensationally trustworthy story about the 18-year-old who is suddenly to become a dad.”
Anne Cathrine Straume, NRK
18-year-old Even is in his last year as a high school student and he has big plans. His ambitions are to qualify for the national championship in climbing and then the examination for military service. When he meets Iben, who is two years older, stunningly beautiful, and a student of philosophy, he falls deeply in love. They spend a night together. But Iben is not easy to understand. She keeps a distance and is hard to contact. Even is thrown into a roller coaster of emotions, from overwhelming love to a broken heart. When a psychiatrist one day contacts Even and tells him that Iben is pregnant and that she is not able to care for a child, he is faced with a difficult choice.
