But where Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time ever. Tina can sense Vore is hiding something she can’t identify. Even worse, she feels a strange attraction to him. As Tina develops a special bond with Vore and discovers his true identity, she also realizes the truth about her. Tina, like Vore, does not belong to this world. Her entire existence has been one big lie and now she has to choose: keep living on the lie or embrace Vore’s terrifying revelations.

UNGA ASTRID (BECOMING ASTRID) by Pernille Fischer Christensen
Before there was Pippi (Longstocking), there was the talented journalist and aspiring writer, Astrid Lindgren. And prior to her emergence as a beloved, world-renowned children’s author, there was the free-spirited Astrid Ericsson, a small-town teenager bursting with anarchic energy, doing the Charleston by herself at the village dance. This superb coming-of-age narrative connects the dots between Lindgren’s most famous character, Pippi, and her own remarkable defiance of social norms, as a fiercely independent-minded career woman and unwed mother, by choice.
