I’ve read a book series called Together. It’s about three teenagers in Sweden. Actually in the area where I live which I think could be one of the main reasons of why I liked it so much. Even thought it was almost seven years since I read the first book I still remember it by heart. It was about friendship and family, which was and still is a big part of my life. They didn't have the perfect life, even if it seemed that way on the outside. This has always been a part of my life; a complicated family life but that is not anything you talk about. It’s sort of hidden under the surface and since the author grew up in my and most of my classmates neighborhood she knows what she is writing about.
And of course, since the book is about a girl and two boys the friendships gets complicated and interesting. It was a lot back and forth... They think they fall in love but they don’t. But really, they do. That is another reason why I liked it... The dream almost every little girl has: to meet a prince and ride of in the sunset on his white horse. These books was like that, the characters had a tough life with trouble both home, in school and with friends but the message was really clear, even for a nine year old girl.. If you hang in there, it will be worth it. The ”prince” or the reward will come in the end.
As I said before, the book take place right were I live. The characters in the book goes to the same school as I went to when I read it which made the book very faithful and real to the nine year old Ebba.
