SOFIA NORDIN’S “ONE SECOND AT A TIME” NOMINATED FOR THE NORDIC COUNCIL CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE’S LITERATURE PRIZE!

Motivation: Sofia Nordin’s gripping, dense and horrid story about life after a catastrophe is unique of its kind. It crawls under your skin, poses questions about our existence and confronts us with things that we would rather not think about.

“One second at a time” is moving, and captivating story of survival against all odds featuring 11-year old Hedvig who is left alone in the world when her entire family, along with the rest of the population, has died in a mysterious fever. It was published last year by Rabén & Sjögren.
