Linnea yearns for something, though she doesn’t really know what exactly. She often goes to the stables on the edge of the big city where she lovingly grooms her horse and takes it out for a ride. Not having had much experience with boys, she awkwardly rejects Erik’s approaches. In that respect, her friend Jenny is a bit more advanced – even if she kisses the wrong one.
