Summary
Nini and Jameelah are fourteen. The summer has just begun and Berlin is their playground. Smelling of salt and suncream, sticky-lipped and heavy-eyed from drinking Tiger Milk all day, they head for the red light district. They've decided it's time to grow up - and practice makes perfect, doesn't it? Tender and funny, shocking and tragic this is an explosive literary debut about leaving childhood behind, ready or not

Summary
Nini and Jameelah are 14, best friends forever. This summer they're going to grow up, together, on their terms. But things don't always turn out the way you plan. As the summer holidays stretch out before them, Berlin becomes their playground. At night they descend on the red light district, impersonating the prostitutes there in order to practice for their first time, giggling to each other, tipsy on Tiger Milk. But then, one night, Nini and Jameelah witness a crime that threatens to ruin everything
