Best Swedish children’s book of the year!

Jenny Jägerfeld‘s novel Här ligger jag och blöder received the August Prize today for best Swedish children’s book of the year.

The novel is primarily written for young adults and tells the story of seventeen year old Maja Müller, who – on the first page – saws off her own thumb. By mistake, one should probably add. The book is published by Gilla Böcker, recently founded by Ada Wester. Congratulations! The other five nominated books can be found here.
