Product description

"Zandkorrels schuurden mijn wang open. Ik wist niet dat die kleine rotkorreltjes zoveel pijn konden veroorzaken. Het was het beste stil te blijven liggen, maar dat kon niet want de arm op mijn rug werd nog verder omhooggeduwd. Een knie pinde mijn bovenlijf vast tegen de vloer, het enige dat ik nog kon bewegen waren mijn benen en mijn hoofd, tot een hand mijn haar greep, op mijn schedel duwde. Mijn wang drukte nog harder tegen de grond, ik was bang dat mijn oog het niet scherp meer kon zien. Ik was net elf, klein voor mijn leeftijd. Mijn belager woog misschien wel honderd kilo. Hij was groot, zelfs voor een volwassene, en hij mocht dit doen. Want hij was de groepsleiding." Deze roman is mede gebaseerd op het levensverhaal van de zestienjarige Michel Merx, die jarenlang verkeerde in het niemandsland van vele jeugdzorginstanties.
("Sand grains were shaving my cheek, I did not know that those little rot pellets could cause so much pain It was best to stay still, but that was not possible because the arm on my back was pushed further up the floor, the only thing that I could move around, was my legs and my head, until a hand grabbed my hair, pushed my skull, my cheek pressed harder, I was afraid my eye could not see it more sharply. I was just eleven, small for my age, my assailant might weigh a hundred kilos, he was big, even for an adult, and he was allowed to do this because he was the group leader. " This novel is based in part on the life story of sixteen-year-old Michel Merx, who spent years in the no man's land of many youth care institutions.)

Written in Dutch.
Cover good, some edge and corner wear.
Excellent pages, minor edge wear.
