  • "Kerstin Gulden creates lively and independent characters, all with their own different motivations and different character developments. (...) A story about trust, solidarity and friendship that reaches its target audience.” Jury of the Oldenburg Children's and Youth Literature Prize

  • Thrilling like "The Wave" by Morton Rhue, frighteningly real like a new edition of George Orwell's 1984 with a focus on climate policy and the responsibility of each individual in society.

A competition. A school. Four students. And a bold idea: what if everyone could see your environmental sins on your social media accounts?  Would you get your act together? Only consume so much energy, food, everything, so that the icon of your app stays green instead of red? Would you play fair? Or...

What starts as a project quickly develops into a movement that soon claims its first victims. Friendships, family ties and loyalties are put to the test. One question hovers over everything: How far would you go to defend your convictions and what will it cost you?
