Janne isn’t like the rest of her family. That’s what Grandma says. The others are slim, while Janne is big. What happened to her, really? Grandma isn’t the only one who comments on Janne’s appearance. People at school do too. Janne is comfort eating and cutting herself off from others, but suddenly her parents suggest a solution to the problem: She’ll get 100 kroner for every kilo she loses. Janne goes along with the agreement and slowly but surely, she gets smaller. But does she get any happier? And does it solve her real problems?
What Happened to You? is a powerful, brave and thought-provoking graphic novel about friendship, being an outsider and living with eating disorders. Jenny Jordahl (best know as the illustrator of the international bestseller Women in Battle) delivers an important and absorbing story for children and young people aged 9 and older.
