Summary

"Novemberkatzen"- is a name for the weak kittens, born in the autumn to the world and which according to legend have a hard time surviving. Also the eleven-year old Ilse, the youngest one in the family, notices already early that life for her is connected with special difficulties. At the edge of a north german village, yet untouched by modern times, Ilse lives with her mother and two brothers in a community center. Ilses everyday life determine experiences between village school and wood sheds, her small escape place, as well as gossip with the shopkeeper and secretly smoking on the garbage dump. Ilse recognizes soon that she cannot trust adults and seeks confidence and security on the other end of the village with her grandmother. Ilse only trusts the old Lene, who is mentally confused by a war experience and attaches only to the small "Novemberk├Ątzchen". Translated from German by ALIPTES
