When Kjersti was seventeen, she could run faster and longer than everybody else. Now, a few years later, she finds herself lying in a nursing home. An idea forms in her head: perhaps if she could succeed in writing a novel, she might feel like a human being again? She begins filling sticky notes with prose... and things begin to happen. "Monsterhuman" is a moving and humorous account of being afraid, getting well, finding the right words, and becoming a real person.
