What friendship can endure

Mischa finds the statements of his best friend Nits super. Nits admires the multi-talented Mischa because he knows a thousand facts about animals. Nits would have unconditionally believed everything Mischa says, until he stumbles across more and more lies and learns that behind it all there are completely different truths - fatal family secrets, of which not even Mischa's little sister Amy knows anything. But how could he not have seen all this!?

A stirring story of poverty, shame, and injustice. A novel in which the award-winning author Stefanie Höfler describes the power of deep trust, of vulnerability and courage. And of a phenomenal friendship that survives even that.
