How to survive myself
The 13-year-old Rosa moves to Groningen with her mom and her 8-month-old half-brother to live with her new stepfather. Far away from her friends, in a new school and in an unfamiliar environment, she struggles with her self-esteem, her stepdad and her alter ego Rooz. Whatever she tries, she gets herself more and more into trouble. How will she survive all this?
