When Inge Maria arrives on the tiny island of Bornholm in Denmark to live with her grandmother, she's not sure what to expect.

Inge Maria tries not to feel sorry for herself, but she misses her mama. And on top of everything else, mischief seems to have a way of finding her no matter how hard she tries to be good ...

But could it be that a bit of mischief is exactly what Grandmother and the people of Bornholm need?

Industry Reviews
'Readers can only hope for more of [Inge Maria Jensen's] happy mischief and genuine heart' - Publishers Weekly STARRED review

'This heartwarming and richly engaging tale explores grief and the sustaining support of humor with an abundance of love' - Kirkus STARRED review

'A truly touching story' - School Library Journal

'This outstanding book is an experience that won't be forgotten. It's magical like a first visit to the circus, or the first sight of a shooting star. Influenced greatly by the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, Nannestad's prose is daring and funny, exhilarating and deeply moving, with a unique writing style and an impressive use of language. Highly recommended' - Kids' Book Review
