Berit Lies/Berit ljuger

Is it ever really okay to lie? If you’re really, really in love perhaps? Berit adores Siri. But Siri is mainly interested in guinea pigs. She draws guinea pigs and talks about guinea pig stuff like cucumbers and sawdust. How can Berit get Siri to think more about Berit? Now the lie is born. Siri tells Berit she is getting a guinea pig of her own – today.

Berit Lies is the second book about Berit, a determined girl with a big heart. These books cover all manner of subjects that can be hard to talk about, like love, lies and taking things that aren’t yours. And what on earth to do when you lie to someone you really like? Can you ever be friends again?
