Leo has lived all his life in Sölvesborg. Nour was born in Damascus. Now they’re in the same class at secondary school, although they’ve never spoken to each other. During an outdoors day in the forest with the class, Nour injures her foot and she and Leo end up in a wind shelter.
They’re soaked through, it’s cold and it’s getting dark. They have to help each other in order to survive, and they have to talk.
Damascus. Sölvesborg shows Per Nilsson at the height of his powers, writing in a clear, lean language about important questions and with vividly credible characters. He has been established as one of Sweden’s most widelyread and beloved authors for children and young people for over thirty years and has many highly-praised books to his name.
