Author Biography: Per Nilsson was born in Mälmo in 1954. Today he lives in Sölvesborg with his four children. He trained as a mathematics and music teacher. For many years he worked part-time in a school and part-time as an author. Today he is a full-time author. He sees his books as letters in which he carries on conversations with young adults about life and death, about hope and belief in the future, about roles we play, the world we live in and about love. His literary strength lies in his use of new motives and unexpected ways of thinking. He has written about twenty books, many of which have won awards. Heart's Delight is the first of Mr. Nilsson's books to be published in the U.S. It won first prize in Rabén & Sjögren's 1992 awards competition for best love story, the prestigious Deutscher Jugendliteraturepreis in 1997, and the Dutch "Silver Kiss" in 1999. Mr. Nilsson also writes the script for a family series on Swedish television.

When i first started reading this book it didn't really make much sense, but as i kept reading i began to love it. It wasn't until the end of the book that i got disappointed, i expected more out of this book, since the middle of the book was so good, the ending really killed it for me.Was this review helpful?

When you start reading, you think this is a book about absolutely nothing. Just three kids who are some what weird. But, thats what makes it such an amazing novel i think. Its different but despite the confusion it has a profound message to itWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
