Barbro has a secret that no one knows, not even her mother or father, she has a twin sister with the most wonderful name: Ylva-Li! When the girls were born Ylva-Li immediately ran to the rosebushes and hid, never to come back. But now Barbro's seven and she's gotten a brand new baby brother who's getting all the attention. One day she hears her sister calling from the rosebushes and Barbro crawls through a hole in the ground down to the Golden Hall where Ylva-Li is queen. Thus the adventure begins! This is a beautiful, magical fairytale intended mainly for little girls, I would say. It's about how a daughter reacts when she's no longer the baby in the family and how she comes to terms with this. 8/10.
