Burn All Bridges
On the surface, Liv Björk has a perfect life. A well-paid finance job, fresh smoothies for breakfast and cocktails at trendy bars. So why is she so unhappy?
One day she realizes she has had enough. Enough of the lunch room competitions over who’s got the healthiest lunch and most fancy vacation plans. Enough with morning meetings, account managing, crying in the bathroom during breaks. Enough with pictures of kale smoothies on Instagram and the constant strive for a better job, better boyfriend, more workouts and more likes.
As a teenager, Liv wrote a letter to herself to read if she ever considered committing suicide. In the letter she asks her future self to give life a second chance, do the things she always dreamt of but never did. Liv decides to give it three months. And when she meets the idealistic and spontaneous Sanna, she starts to see life from a different perspective. But what will she do when the three months have passed?
Burn All Bridges deals with issues of our time with both gravity and humor. How do we really feel behind our polished pictures? In this smart feel good novel, Siri Helle examines the question many of us have asked: how do I become happy?
“Finally! Do you know how difficult it is to find good literature with queer couples? Liv and Sanna are treated like real people! Siri Helle brings you on a journey, Liv is a relatable character with her shortcomings, and one cares for her and those in her vicinity. I read the book in one day, could not put it down. I laughed, I cried and it has an obvious place in my bookshelf.”
