About The Book

As compelling as The Lovely Bones and as memorable as Before I Fall, Minus Me raises thought-provoking questions about love and death

It’s not always easy to become the person you want to be.

When Linda discovers that she has a life-threatening heart condition, she refuses to be wrapped in cotton wool. Determined to experience everything a thirteen-year-old girl should, she starts to work her way through a list of all the things she and her best friend wish to do: have a first kiss, go to a pop concert, travel without her parents... But when a strange and mysterious boy called Zak appears, Linda’s life takes an unexpected turn – suddenly she is experiencing things she never dreamed possible, and every moment is precious.

Minus Me is a gripping, addictive novel – written with heart-stopping emotional honesty – from one of Norway’s most acclaimed young adult writers.
