Never Too Late!

Elin Ek

Elin Ek’s Athena is a good friend who, with bags of confidence and a can-do attitude, tries to change the world for the better, leaving the reader with the feeling that nothing is impossible.

Athena is starting 7b. On the first day of school Athena feels happy and excited in class, just like on Christmas Eve! Starting middle school is already pretty great, but two more awesome things are happening in Athena’s life: she is turning 12, and Yousef is becoming more than just a friend…

This autumn, the Save the Earth Gang face their greatest challenge yet: how can they get 1.6 million old people in Sweden to top loafing around in their retirement homes and become climate activists? The SEG is shocked to find their pensioner friends at Raisin Gardens are forced to sit around watching dumb TV with only three channels in a stuffy common room! No wonder they seem apathetic – their lives are super boring! Lucky that Athena is named after the Greek goddess of war and wisdom, because this is going to take brilliant ideas and a fighting spirit!
