    1. Ari is a german boy, who learned violin from his grandfather, who died. All Ari wants is to play violin, but in solitude, and not let anyone know, espesially not the kids at school. Even though he wants this, he comes across times when he needs to play in front of an audience. When he does, he finds that strangers, not only his mother, think that he has a special "gift" for music.


    2. So tenderly and fairly looks at questions of fitting in, being transnational, a child, agency, talent, grief, friendship. But moves lightheartedly. A good read for a child or adult. Sensitive. Subtle. Sweet.



    3. A very touching story, perfect for children and adults. The story is well written and drives you to the end smoothly, like traveling in a cloud. I enjoyed reading it.


    4. understand how people feel when they are in an environment or interacting with new people, I don't think this is npt my genre though.
