The village children live by the law of the jungle. Led on by the meanest, most brutal of the boys, they take pleasure in ridiculing Ravenboy. One day an enchanting girl arrives. She has come from far away and beguiles all the children. But who will she choose to favor with her attentions?

Andrea Deppert was born in 1977 in Göttingen and attended Leibniz College in Tübingen.
