I had to read this book as a Hauslektüre for my German class. I find it thoroughly enjoyable. The setting of the story is East Germany (DDR: Deutsche Demokratische Republik) in the time after World War II. The story is about the lives in East Germany, and focuses mainly on the protagonist Michael (aka Micha). Michael Kuppich is in love with a girl called Miriam, whom he describes as the most beautiful girl in the world. Throughout the book we'll see how Micha is trying to get the girl, how the lives of teenagers there are like, and how the 'system' works in the DDR. It's a story about going through life and growing up. I really like this book.
