Book description
All her life, Karo has believed that her father was killed in an accident before her birth. So when a stranger comes to the door, eleven years later, Karo wants nothing to do with Martin, the man her mother loved years ago, the man who is her father. The fall of the Berlin Wall has reunited Karo's mother and father, but can Karo come to terms with her new family, or can things only get worse for her? A moving story about friendship and complicated family relationships, "Over the Wall" is a deceptively simple story, beautifully told.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Karo's dad is dead - or so she believes - and when a stranger comes to the door one day looking for her mum, Karo wants nothing to do with this man. But Karo's mother won't see sense. She starts to spend more and more time with this strange man from her past, and can't see how unhappy it is all making her daughter. Karo squabbles with her friend, starts to skip school, she even runs away to her grandfather, but nothing she can do seems to have any effect on her changing family. Set in Hamburg after the fall of the Berlin Wall, this is a story of how international events can affect the everyday lives of ordinary families.… (more)
