Supernova by Tamar van den Dop


All that Meis (15) experiences is the passing of the time, waiting for the next car to hit her house.

Meis lives in the back of beyond and aspires to a wonderful and stirring life, but all that happens is - nothing at all. She dreams of a young car driver called 'Brad', whom she would like to take care of and maybe have sex with. One night, deliverance finally arrives. Outside her house, a car is enveloped in a cloud of dust. Inside lies the solution incarnate, all crumpled up. He is around 19 and his name could very well be Brad.
