Overview Dumme, dumme hjarte

Entertaining and intense about love
In Klara’s opinion, love is nothing but a piece of crap. It is deeply concerning that her father Frode has no new girlfriend in sight. To make things better, Klara writes a fake love letter to all the single ladies in their neighbourhood – to embarrassing and unexpected consequences. But who is Klara herself falling in love with? She does not really know until a new girl enters her classroom. Marie Lindkvist dances ballet like a matter of life and death. She dances like this is her last dance on earth. Linda Klakken’s children’s book debut is a story about falling in love for the first time, involving school dances, kissing games, and unbearable heartache.

Book reviews:

‘To fall in love with someone of one’s own gender is not the main theme of the book. It is described as organic as if this was a crush on someone of the opposite sex, which makes this a good read.

‘Klakken has written a feel-good novel loaded with exaggerations and humouristic scenes, while at the same time exposing vulnerable undercurrents.’
