Shadows in the Twilight
Originally published in Swedish as Skuggorna växer i skymningen in 2004.

Part of the Joel Gustafsson series for children 14 years of age.

From Andersen Press:
One of the world's best-selling authors has written a moving story about a teenager's life in Northern Sweden.

Joel will soon be twelve, and he thinks nothing's going on in the small community where he lives. But he's wrong there. One day, a Miracle happens to him. He's very nearly run over by a bus, but is miraculously unhurt. Now, what do you do when a Miracle has come your way? Shouldn’t you show gratitude somehow? Surely a good deed of some sort is in order. But how?

A humorous, wise, and understanding portrait of a boy about to leave childhood behind him, this is an independent sequel to the award-winning and much-praised A Bridge to the Stars.
