This is the age you are broken Or turned into gold Initially I thought storytteller to be another bad boy but I immediately found myself attached to him from the very moment he ran to Micha, hold her in his arm and spin her around in the air, I found a passionate and caring boy living inside his rough shell.

All my friends storhteller a funeral going on Goodreads and everyone was crying. She sits close but undetected, listening as Abel tells a fairytale that completely entrances Anna.

Update I can’t get this book out of my head. I was in double mind about reading this book. The one who was killing off the villains in the story and in real life, starting with the man with the blond mustache, Micha’s father and then the diamond trader, the social services agent.
