Winner of IBBY Turkey 2012 Best Children’s Story Book Award with her book The Moon is Everywhere (Aydede Her Yerde)  Hacer Kılcıoğlu greets her readers with a delightful new story, combining three characters from her three previous books. Tibet from I Love Thursdays (Perşembeleri Çok Severim) Çiçek from Today My Name is Cactus (Bugün Adım Kaktüs Benim) and Mahmut from The Bagel Seller (Gevrekçiii) all get together in the same school. Turning into their teenage years, our beloved heroes’ stories interwine quite unexpectedly.


As the new school year starts, Tibet, Çiçek and Mahmut’s stories interwine with important changes in their lives.

Tibet’s life is enriched with his grandmother Ruzi who moved closer. Çiçek has to witness to the decline of her beloved grandfather’s health situation. Mahmut is impatient to see his role at French Frank’s documentary. Turning into their teenage years, their journey through life continues with surprises, beauties and struggles.
