Synopsis

It will be a long life is a collection of spot-on comic strips, describing a teenage girl’s life with its happiness, sorrow and worries. The book is jam-packed with humorous energy and recognisable situations which both daughters and parents will no doubt be able to see themselves in. The book focuses on a list of relevant themes such as friendship, parent relationship, state of the world, SoMe, parties and, not least, looks – and yes, of course also boys! StineStregen portrays the insecurity, the awkward, the cool, the funny and the unknown involved in teenage life with equilibristic accuracy.
