Svarttrasta syng om natta

Edith + Martha = true
This is the story of Edith, a girl who hates everything and everyone. She is the one who always hides beneath her hoodies, gets whispered about in the classroom, and more than anything just wishes she could disappear without a trace.
Yet this is also the story of Martha, a girl who loves the Beatles, misses her father, and tries to see the best in everyone – no matter what.
Edith and Martha are as different as chalk and cheese, but their worlds still manage to collide when they start high school in the same class. This sparks an unusual friendship, and they soon discover that they have a lot more in common than you might think.
The Blackbird Sings at Night is a story about inner turmoil and great loss, as well as a love story, a tale of trust and hope. A story about daring to be you, even though you’re different. 263 pages.
Tone E. Solheim (b. 1989) has made her literary debut with the novel The Blackbird Sings at Night.
