Kleine Schwester

Little Sister

Published by Diogenes as Kleine Schwester
Original Title: Kleine Schwester
The twelve-year-old Lilly sits silently in front of the woman police officer. All attempts to make her speak fail. Lilly cannot explain the relentless chronology of unfortunate events that have pitched her family into disaster, she can only remember her childhood, which was overshadowed by disruptive events but which also contained some wonderful moments of happiness: her parents, ›the best in the world‹, and her foster sister Lotta who came from a home to make ›a real family‹ of them all – and who triggered the catastrophe which was not to end until Lilly took the hardest decision of her life … A book that you can't put down until you have read the last sentence.
