Further information on this book

Sometimes you can go from invisibility to being the centre of attention, becoming the person that everyone wants as a friend. All it takes is a fall, with a spectacular cut to show. It is exciting and beautiful to receive all that attention, but what happens when the cut heals?

After La Buca, Emma AdBåge returns to tell the story of life in a schoolyard, games, friendships, group dynamics, with her sharp eye and on the side of the children.
