Handbook for Superheroes 9: A New Friend/Handbok för superhjältar 9: En ny vän

Real friends don’t let you down.

Rosenhill has probably never been this calm and quiet before. The worst thing to happen nowadays is someone playing music too loudly or forgetting to water their plants. The Red Mask and the other superheroes use the time to practice their superpowers. Lisa finds herself being a natural leader to the boys.

But then one day, Lisa sees a girl she’s never seen before. She is the same age as Lisa, but she does not go to their school. Soon the girl appears in the most unexpected of places. On a roof where she sits dangling her legs, completely fearless. She is tougher and braver than anyone Lisa has ever met. But who is she? And could she and Lisa maybe become friends?

Since 2017, the books about the Red Mask have topped the best seller lists of both the most bought and most borrowed children’s books in Sweden. The series has since sold in over 1,5 million copies in Sweden alone and abroad the books have been translated into 20 languages.
