Mitt liv som zucchini

Description in Swedish

Zucchini heter egentligen Ikaros, men hans mamma har alltid kallat honom Zucchini. När hon dör är smeknamnet hon gett honom det enda han har kvar av henne. Han är säker på att han är ensam i världen – tills han lär känna sina nya vänner på barnhemmet. Simon, Ahmed, Jujube, Alice och Béatrice har alla sina berättelser och de är lika hjärtskärande som ömsinta. Och så är det en flicka, Camille… När man är 10 år finns det så mycket att upptäcka – som hur det är att ha kompisar, bli kär och vem vet, kanske till och med vara lycklig.

Description in English

Zucchinis name is actually Icarus, but his mother always called him Zucchini. When she dies, the nickname she gave him is all he has left of her. He is sure that he is alone in the world – until he meets his new friends at the orphanage. Simon, Ahmed, Jujube, Alice and Beatrice all have all their stories, and they are as heartbreaking as they are tender. And then there’s a girl, Camille… When one is 10 years old, there is so much to discover – such as how it is to have friends, fall in love, and who knows, maybe even be happy.
