Henkilökunnan suosittelu A polyphonic novel about 12 girls, women or other whose lives more or less intertwine with each other. Full of empathy, understanding, friendship and grace. If you're interested in race, feminism, intersectionality and or women in Britain, it's a must read. If you enjoy books about friendships between women, you won't be disappointed either. - Outi, Hki
