New release in Norway: Hon som rodde mot regnbuen

The YA novel “Hon sum róði móti ælaboganum” by Rakel Helmsdal was published in 2014 by BFL, and won The West Nordic Council Children and Youth Literature Prize in 2016. The novel was also nominated for the Nordic Council Children and Young People Literature Prize in 2017, and has just been released in Norway by Orkana Forlag.

The book is about the girl Argantael who looks like the perfect teenage girl; clever, beautiful, trendy and popular amongst her peer but she does not have what she craves the most; parents who care about her.

Love, deceit and friendship are some of the main themes dealt with in the novel and it is written with inspiration from Edward Elgar’s “Enigma Variations”.
