If you were me
ORIGINAL TITLE: Om du var jag
AUTHOR: Jessica Schiefauer
ORIGINAL PUBLISHER: Bonnier Carlsen
There are a thousand ways to abandon someone. But they all hurt just as much.
Louise and Agnes are twin souls. There just can’t be two other people in the whole world who fit together as well as they do, although they are so different on the outside.
Louise is the kind of person everyone wants to be with – attractive, sexy, fun and inventive. Agnes is not like that at all, unfortunately; she is mostly grey and invisible and generally insignificant. And yet for some reason Louise wants to be with her. She even wants them to get an apartment together now that they’ve finished school and life has really begun.
But the reality does not turn out to be the way they expected; someone called Hannes comes into Agnes’s life, and Louise starts behaving more and more strangely. Behind her strong façade there are glimpses of another personality, and one day she simply goes away, leaving Agnes with a thousand unanswered questions. Agnes begins to look into the life she and Louise shared together. Slowly she discovers that nothing is what she thought it was.
If You Were Me is a book about friendship, love, secrets and life.
