Wind und der geheime Sommer

Wind and the Secret Summer

When 10-year-old John-Marlon slips through a gap in a fence in the middle of town one day to find himself on a deserted, run-down building site, he has no idea that what he sees before him will be his summer paradise. There, he joins a group of children led by a girl called Wind. Together they spend an amazing time filled with adventure and imagination amid rampant nature and crumbling walls. But Wind has a secret, and when the summer is over, everything will be different.

Antonia Michaelis addresses childhood longings, the desire for freedom and adventure, and tells her story in a superbly atmospheric style.
