Boys by Mischa Kamp


BOYS tells the story of Sieger, a sporty, rather quiet 15-year-old boy who discovers love during the summer holidays.

Sieger is training for the national relay championships when he meets the intriguing and unpredictable Marc. The friendship that develops seems nothing out of the ordinary, but Sieger secretly harbours stronger feelings for Marc, engaging in a lonely struggle with himself. But then it emerges that Marc is also in love with him…
