The Blue Room (Coming of Age Series) by Hanne ěrstavik
3.0 out of 5 stars Unusual Norwegian novel, 13 July 2014
An unusual coming of age story involving a mother and daughter, each depending on the other in different ways. Intelligently written. I liked the way the story jumped backwards and forwards in time gradually building to its climax. How Johanne's building relationship with a boy at her college, eventually, after a short time, with them deciding to escape for a few weeks to America and her mother's extreme response to that.
