MIJN

Een bloedstollend verhaal voor young adults over angst, misdaad en liefde. Indringend en levensecht geschreven. Beleef het stockholmsyndroom zelf.

Maïa heeft als voedster van Toetankhamon een nauwe band met hem, die blijft bestaan als hij als negenjarige jongen tot farao wordt gekroond. Tien jaar later krijgt ze bericht van zijn dood. Tijdens een veldtocht tegen het Hettische leger is zijn strijdwagen omgeslagen. Was het een dom ongeluk of was het moord? Ooit heeft Maïa Toet beloofd om de koningin bij te staan, mocht hem iets overkomen. Daardoor raakt Maïa ook betrokken bij de strijd om de troon. Ze moet vluchten, samen met de koningin en Nakhtmin, de commandant van de lijfwacht. Om haar verdriet over de dood van ‘haar jongen’ te verwerken voert ze in gedachten gesprekken met hem en brengt zo het kind tot leven waarvan ze houdt alsof het haar eigen zoon is.

mijn

De jongen achter het masker

Greet Beukenkamp

Daphne is ontvoerd door drie mannen en wordt opgesloten in de kelder van een afgelegen huis. Het blijkt om losgeld te gaan. Daphne staat doodsangsten uit. Door de onzekerheid over haar lot is ze constant op haar hoede. Het enige lichtpuntje is haar jongste ontvoerder. Hij maakt soms een praatje met haar en doorbreekt zo haar eenzaamheid. Ze vraagt hem of hij een blocnote voor haar mee kan nemen omdat ze graag gedichten schrijft. Achter in de blocnote begint ze stiekem een dagboek, waarin ze alles opschrijft wat ze meemaakt. Terwijl de betaling van het losgeld op zich laat wachten en de angst voor verkrachting en moord loert, worden Daphnes gevoelens voor haar jongste ontvoerder steeds verwarrender …
