Kiek

New title by Mariken Jongman, following her earlier novel Rits. The familiar theme of a girl in search of her natural father is taken here to a deeper level and involves several kinds of relation- ships. In a true-to-life story, 14-year-old Kiek Florijn, rebellious, enterprising yet vulnerable, starts looking for her unknown father. All she knows is that he used to play bass in a band. As her quest continues she unravels more than she had hoped for.

‘Right from the start Jongman creates that special condition all successful youth novels have in common: you get caught up in a bubble which swells so greatly that you no longer want to leave it. Her style is smooth; she weaves her sentences into a novel with incredible ease.'
- de Volkskrant, Pjotr van Lenteren
