Tiffany Grace

A gripping and utterly original teenage portrait written by Tjibbe Veldkamp.

Tough girl Tiffany lives in a rough district and in raw reality with her single mother who is entirely bound up in herself and her two half-brothers who seem unable to stay out of trouble. She is miserable at home until one day she holds a baby and is startled by feelings of love and tenderness. She decides that she wants to hold on to that feeling, no matter what. In the course of the adventure she then gets mixed up in she realizes that extreme measures are sometimes needed to achieve what you wish for.

Tjibbe Veldkamp's short, spare sentences match Tiffany's personality perfectly. He is able to empathise with his characters with absurd humour and quirkiness. His style is powerful, authentic, fluent and expressive.
