Her father used to show

Her father used to show Malena the colorful side of life. But since he has passed away there is only one color left: the gray that her deeply depressive mother spreads. To the rest of the world, Malena tries to maintain the pretense of an unimpaired everyday life. However, an unexpected letter causes it all to totter: Malena secretly has to try to find answers. Her journey into the past creates new friendships and even confidence but the secrets surrounding her family are dark enough to even turn the gray into black. Not before she knows all about it will she be able to help herself and her mother. - thrilling and complex - the courage to face life can’t be dashed - Michaela Holzinger: an established name in literature for young people Michaela Holzinger Wind Is Blowing Cold ISBN 978 3 85197 827 8 12+ Years | 220 Pages | Euro 12,95 Published: 2016 All rights available 2.500 Copies Michaela Holzinger was born in 1978 in Steyr / Austria.
