Abidi, Heike (Author)

Justine’s life is turned upside down in more than one way: First she has to leave her beloved boarding school and attend an ordinary school instead – where there’s no hockey team, debating club or flute class. Then one evening in the garden, she is hit by ball lightning, which briefly puts her out of action. When she regains consciousness, everything seems fine at first, but the following day at school, she notices that things are anything but normal. Suddenly Justine can read the boys’ minds, at least where feelings are concerned. This results in some enlightening insights, but also pretty much in emotional chaos because there’s Lenny, who’s really cute and whose thoughts run wild when he’s near to Justine. But then they fall silent… | 12 +

Tammie simply adores pistachio ice cream. She also loves sayings, or to be more precise, the sayings inscribed on gravestones – a rather surprising hobby for a 16-year-old. It seems a little less surprising once you know that Tammie has an aneurism in her head. It has made itself comfortable right in the middle of her synapses and could implode at any moment – or not. That is the big question – and a great deal in Tammie’s life revolves around it. It’s only when Tammie gets to know a boy she sees shaking at the gravestones in the cemetery that things change completely for her.
