Synopsis

Vigga is a talented skater; a young woman in a predominantly male sport who is used to standing up for herself. She spends all her spare time training intensively to prove that she is just as good as her male peers. That is until she meets William: he is handsome, he is cool and he is sharp. He sees beyond Vigga’s armour and wants to do all he can to look after her. Also when she starts receiving threatening messages. And Vigga needs all the support she can get jn what is to become the most challenging time of her life: who is the person behind the anonymous messages, who can she trust?

A powerful story - based on real stories of young women who urged the author to write their tale - about how quickly you can lose grip of your life - even if you are strong-minded and used to standing up for yourself.
