A collection of ”little awesome stories and little awful stories” from Finland’s internationally most successful YA author.
What is the most awful or the most awesome thing that has happened to you? Salla Simukka’s anticipated new book includes little awful stories and little awesome stories about young people’s lives. Why are under-fifteens not allowed in the basement? What happened in Dog’s Head Park? Who makes nightly visits in Klara’s solitary confinement room? What does it take to make out with lights on?
The flip book Turn Off the Lights! Turn On the Lights! shows the both sides of the matter; the stories mirror each other in surprising and exhilarating ways, and the genres range from horror to romance to sci-fi and realism.
