During a diving competition Linda discovers that she has a rare heart condition and is told that her only hope of surviving is a heart transplant. Sensitive, introspective, and intelligent, Linda refuses to be wrapped up in cotton wool, despite her parent’s wishes. Determined to experience everything a 13-year-old girl should, Linda starts to work her way through a list of all the things she and her best friend wish to do: have a first kiss, go to a pop concert, travel without parents . . . But as Linda starts to tick these off, a mysterious emo boy called Zak appears — and always at the most unexpected moments. And he is happy to accompany her on daring escapades, particularly those that her timid best friend refuses to go on. But is Zak good or bad? And why is he the only one that Linda can share her fears with?

Minus Me is a gripping, addictive novel — written with heart-stopping emotional honesty — from one of Norway’s most acclaimed young adult writers.

"The book’s voice is its strongest asset: Linda’s reactions to her situation ring true, and as the book addresses themes of life and culpability with wisdom and humor, philosophical lines intertwine easily with moments of intense emotion.”
— Publishers Weekly

"The story is moving, and Linda is a realistic 13-year-old, complete with flaws. Her reaction to her diagnosis is believable: She is angry about her illness and often cruel to her family and friends, though she is remorseful afterward. VERDICT Give this one to fans of Gabrielle Zevin's Elsewhere"
— School Library Journal

"MINUS ME is a book about growing up too fast, and not fast enough all at once. The heartfelt struggles of Linda will both challenge and comfort the reader, while leaving enough room for life’s mysteries.”
— YA Books Central

"MINUS ME is a compelling, heart-wrenching novel full of adventures and harsh reality. We all know nobody is perfect, but with death so near, this gets in the way a little more than usual. Who wants to be remembered for the terrible things they did? But who can help it? Linda learns this lesson and many more. The writing style creates a chilling effect that keeps you wanting more. The characters are well-developed with contrasting (and sometimes conflicting) personalities... MINUS ME is a good read for anyone who's in the mood for an adventurous story that also touches on the subject of the cruelty of reality.”
