Book about common problems of an adolescent girl. The seven chapters of the book presents seven days from the life of the heroine Lucia. The young reader encounters problems in love, family, confusing feelings, inclusion in society. The book opens up even more difficult topics such as unemployment of the father and his efforts to find work and to determine the social status of the family. The novel is accompanied by comics elements that accentuate the storyline of the book. The book provides an understanding not only for young readers, but also for adults who want to have a look at teenagers' problems. The story, however, is told with humour and lightness. The book won the award as The Best Children's Book of the Fall 2011.
