Das Schreien des Mädchens geht ihm durch Mark und Bein: Es singt glockenreine, vollkommene Töne. Was für ein Menschenkind hat er hier gefunden? Er nimmt die Kleine mit nach Hause und versteckt sie. Theres - so wird sie genannt - soll Lennarts eigenen Lebenstraum einer Musikkarriere erfüllen. Er ahnt nicht, dass er sich das eigene Verderben ins Haus geholt hat ...

"Establishes Lindqvist as Sweden's Stephen King." --The Washington Post on Harbor John Ajvide Lindqvist has been crowned the heir apparent to Stephen King by numerous sources, and he is heralded around the globe as one of the most spectacularly talented horror writers working today. His first novel, Let the Right One In, is a cult classic that has been made into iconic films in both Sweden and in the United States. His second novel, Handling the Undead, is beloved by horror fans everywhere. His third novel, Harbor, is a masterpiece that draws countless comparisons to Stephen King. Now, with Little Star, his most profoundly unsettling book yet, Lindqvist treads previously unmarked territory. A man finds a baby in the woods, left for dead. He brings the baby home, and he and his wife raise the girl in their basement. When a shocking and catastrophic incident occurs, the couple's son Jerry whisks the girl away to Stockholm to start a new life. There, he enters her in a nationwide singing competition. Another young girl who's never fit in sees the performance on TV, and a spark is struck that will ignite the most terrifying duo in modern fiction. Little Star is an unforgettable portrait of adolescence, a modern-day Carrie for the age of internet bullies, offensive reality television, and overnight You Tube sensations. Chilling, unnerving, and petrifying, Little Star is Lindqvist's most disturbing book to date.

At the end of the story, Little Star, having made it through many adventures, safely sits on the potty, relief apparent in a big smile"--
