The captivating and moving follow-up to the international bestseller Beartown. 'I utterly believed in the residents of Beartown, and felt ripped apart by the events in the book' Jojo Moyes on Beartown Can a broken town survive a second tragedy? By the time the last goal is scored, someone in Beartown will be dead . . . Us Against You is the story of two towns, two teams and what it means to believe in something bigger than yourself. It's about how people come together - sometimes in anger, often in sorrow, but also through love. And how, when we stand together, we can bring a town back to life. Praise for Fredrik Backman: 'A mature, compassionate novel' Sunday Times 'Backman can tickle the funny bone and tug on the heart strings when he needs to, and is a clever enough storyteller to not overindulge in either' Independent 'As popular Swedish exports go, Backman is up there with ABBA and Stieg Larsson' The New York Times Book Review
