Danger. High Voltage

By Helene Guåker

A story about living as a roommate with your sick mother

Lea is in her second year of high school. She lives in one of her school’s onsite
apartments and has zero friends. Back home on the farm, Mum never gets out of
bed. No matter what Lea does or says, her mum just won’t get up.
In order to make friends, Lea relies on Vilde. Vilde is so smart and funny and
cool. She doesn’t have a sick mum. Vilde can hook up with Halvor, too. Vilde can
do anything in the world. But then something happens that makes Vilde disappear,
and Lea can’t just be someone else anymore.

Danger. High Voltage was nominated for best Children’s book in the Brage awards and Critics awards.
