Karina is the story of a girl navigating her way through the difficult world of adolescence. The main character, Karina, is an awkward teen with relatable problems, who embarks upon a journey of self-discovery and ultimately self-acceptance.

Be ready to have your eyes and heart opened by this book. It will change the way you look at yourself and the world around you.
