Ni Dører?

Nine DoorsAccording to good old Google, that’s how you say “Nine Doors” in Norwegian.

I have no idea if the Scandinavian publisher will keep that title but my comic high/low novel  will soon be available in Norway.

To which all I can say is, “Kjempeflott!”

(Which I hope means “awesome” and not “grilled cheese sandwich” or “orthopedic insoles” – although both, under the correct conditions, can be pretty darn good too.)

In case you’re not familiar with Nine Doors (“What?!), it’s a short Young Adult novel in Orca’s wonderful Currents series.

Here are a few reviews to whet your appetite.

“Vicki Grant has done it again: she’s come up with another great hi-lo teen novel that is almost certain to garner accolades equal to those which her past efforts (all ALA “Quick Picks” books) have earned. NINE DOORSboasts a plot that’s simple yet gripping, pacing that’s tight and rapid-fire, and true-to-life characters that will resonate with readers both young and old…On top of its absorbing storyline and sharply-drawn main characters who undergo believable changes, NINE DOORS even has a splash of romance thrown in – truly a fantastic all-round read that is a sure bet for grabbing the interest of reluctant readers. CM Magazine

“No one creates more likable, fully rounded characters than Vicki Grant’s protagonists and “good guys”. Her central characters are memorable individuals whose comments clearly show their views of the world and the motivations and interconnections between them and their allies.” The Virtual Bookmark

“Realistic action and dialogue, along with a fast-paced plot, will keep reluctant readers turning pages.” School Library Journal
