RECOMMENDED FROM AGE 8: Sascha lives with his Mum and two elder siblings in a tower block in Thüringen. With his best friend Elli, he goes on long cycle rides and discovers unusual places. Elli is the only person who accepts Sascha as he is. Everyone else just keeps telling him what he's doing wrong. It's no wonder that Sascha is frustrated and quickly loses his temper. The child welfare service appoint Frank as a "bodyguard" and Sascha is prescribed medication against ADHD that should calm him down. His teachers and mother are at last satisfied with him, but Sascha has changed. Elli puts it in a nutshell: Sascha has lost his laugh.
