Vyskocit z kože/ Jump out of Skin

written by Zuza Ferenczová

Making decisions is always hard, even if you feel so sorrowful that you can’t tell your best friends. In the case of Kika and Ika, the main girl’s
question is: How come some problems get sorted out on their own and the others don’t get sorted neither by 84 kilos of WAITANDSEE, nor
The girl is ALMOSTFOURTEEN, pregnant and she doesn’t know, what to do. She can’t have a baby but she also can’t make a decision to
terminate her pregnancy. Because she doesn’t want to kill her foetus without knowing what WILLBEAFTER. Even if she is pretending to do
a survey, no one can answer her question. So she takes the courage to feel the touch of death on her own skin and find out, what kind of life
is THERE. In the world of ALMOSTFOURTEENS you don’t ask the adults, you try to solve everything on your own. While hanging out of
school the girl meets a boy, who is alive only because his mum ran away from the abortion table in her POLKADOTPAJAMAS. The girl
doesn’t have a mother and even though the boy has one, he hates her. As he says: Mother is like a tattoo you’re stuck with till the end of your
life, that’s hard core. The boy agrees to help the girl to die just a little bit. The practical boy’s question is – how to do it? Finally they find a way,
but it is really hard to try to kill your friend. Even harder if you’ve just fallen in love with her. The time is rushing – the girl had just 84DAYS
to decide and now it’s the last one. In the same time Kika and Ika solve the equally important question – what to wear if you know you are
going to the other world?
And one more thing: If you HAVEAPROBLEM, you shouldn’t give the PROBLEM a name. LEM-PROB. Is that a name?
