16-year-old Maia goes to school, works in a juice bar, and often takes care of her two younger sisters in order to give her single mother a break. Nominated for the 2021 German Children’s Literature Award, this illustrated novel tells a story »in a casual, calm way« [DIE ZEIT], using free verse, about a self-confident teenager who successfully rebels against common norms of behaviour and beauty.
