The Hunger Games meets Jurassic Park The Bookseller
A beautiful, funny and honest coming-of-age story that never pretends life is perfect, The Unpredictability of Being Human was chosen as The Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week.
"If I got to be God for one day, I'd like to say I'd end world hunger and create world peace. But I wouldn't. Because if God could fix the big stuff, he'd have done it already." Malin knows she can't fix the big stuff in her life. Instead, she watches from the sidelines, as her dad yells, her brother lies and her mum falls apart. At least after she meets Hanna she has a friend to help her. Because being Malin is complicated – learning how to kiss, what to wear to prom, and what to do when you upset the prettiest, meanest girl in school. It's tough fitting in when you're different. But what if it's the world that's weird, not you? A beautiful, funny and honest coming-of-age story that never pretends life is perfect.
Coming-of-age narratives are common, but this is exceptional. The Sunday Times
