Topless

written by Jutta Nymphius and illustrated by Irmela Schautz

Amelie is 13 and really good at Photoshop. If only she could also photoshop her own life as well… Her parents are constantly fighting with each other, her best friend Nick behaves strangely and she has to face the fact that she is not one of the trendy girls – if her classmates want to pick on someone, usually Amelie is the victim. – And then there is her body: Her belly is too big and her breasts too small. It is clear, that Elias whom she has liked for quite a while already, will never just even look at her. Things change, when Kira is new in Amelie’s class. She introduces Elias to Amelie and the two start to videochat regularly. Soon, there is nothing that Amelie wouldn’t share with Elias. They can talk about anything and Amelie is on cloud nine. As one day, Elias wants to see her topless, she hesitates but finally sends him a picture of herself. As it goes public in the chatroom of her class, Amelie is shocked at first, but in the end, it becomes obvious that Elias didn’t know Amelie as much as he thought he did…
