Comments

Nominated for a Debut Novel of the Year prize (Helsingin Sanomat Literary Prize)

A Finnish bestseller which sold over 20,000 copies in Finland since its publication in September 2018.

This is smart, funny, satirical, and very well written. Totally in the vein of Sex and the City, Girls, Bridget Jones, and ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE.

Debut novel.

Sisko Savonlahti is a Finnish journalist and blogger.

Summary

“I know that I have to do something about all of this, and I have to do it kind of soon. But right now I want to lie on the balcony a little longer and think about my ex-boyfriend.”

These are the thoughts of a young woman in her flat, overhearing the people squealing in the nearby amusement park. It’s almost summer, and it’s about time for her to get over her breakup. She has to get up from the doldrums, find a job, fall in love, kickstart a spiral of positive thinking.

But should she fulfill other people’s expectations or act according to her heart’s desire? How do you know what is your heart’s desire? So many questions, often much less tempting than examining the soil in your plant pots, texting friends or mixing the dip for crisps. Will she ever be able to handle this thing called life?
