Hou van me is a must-read for young people. It is a gripping story about relationships, sex and society. You are reading the diary of 16-year-old Claudia. She lives with her mother in Schiedam and knew little love in her youth. Therefore, she looks for it with the wrong boys. When Claudia gets into a secret relationship with Annin, she soon discovers that it is not real love. Then she meets Drahim and for a moment her life seems perfect. But can he really be trusted?
Although Hou van me is a made-up story, there are many girls - and boys, too - who will recognize themselves in Claudia's story. Claudia does things she doesn't want, in exchange for love and recognition. But you only find love when you love yourself first. That's what Hou van me is about.
