Topelius Prize to Simukka

The Topelius Prize, awarded by the youth writers’ association of Finland for the best Finnish YA book published in the previous year, has been given to Salla Simukka for her novels Jäljellä (Without a Trace) and Toisaalla (Elsewhere). The novels examine the world of the youth, the pressures of society, and finding the important things in life, be it in a dystopic world almost devoid of people or in the virtual world created for the young who are in danger of being left behind by the society.

If you would be interested in these books, reading materials in English can be requested from the literary agency.
