The Forgotten Book German Edition:
"Gl ser writes in the tradition of beloved YA writers, such as Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, Susan Cooper and J. K. Rowling. Her style is light and witty, and she is able to create a self-contained world that every reader will long to visit. . . . Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice may have been the starting point for Gl ser, but she has turned the old material of enemies-turned-lovers into a charming new story. This book is an unexpected delight and a true page-turner." --New Books in German
