Hoe overleef ik mezelf? by Francine Oomen
The main character is a young teenager, who could only be described as annoying. It's a journey of self-discovery, where the main character struggles to appreciate herself - her body image, her personality, others' reactions to her, whether she has a boyfriend, and so on. She struggles with who she is and who she wants herself to be (graffiti being the hobby she takes up in the book). Although her perspective can be quite refreshing, it can also be a bit 'over-the-top.' The mess she gets herself in is a bit unbelievable at times, even if she still is a fascinating character to get to know.
